George Adamson, also known as Baba ya Simba (Father of Lions), was a senior game warden of the Northern Frontier District of Kenya in the late 1930s. He was also one of the founding fathers of wildlife conservation and an author. He and his wife, Joy, are best known for the best-selling book 'Born Free', which is based on the true story of Elsa the Lioness, an orphaned lioness cub they had raised and later released into the wild.
Kenya was immortalised as the home of the safari by legendary personalities such as Ernest Hemingway and Karen Blixen. The classic 'Out of Africa' movie, filmed in Kenya, perfectly portrays the romance, thrill and excitement of the country.
Although safaris are a great attraction, Kenya is a country of great diversity with much more to offer. One cannot go on safari in Kenya without having an urge to visit and experience the way of life of the renowned Masai tribe of Kenya. The Masai, iconic pastoralists of the East African savannah, live in harmony with nature and is one of the few remaining tribes that tries to hold onto their traditions and culture amidst westernisation.
