Finally Disney’s latest Disneynature documentary film African Cats has hit cinema screens across the UK. As part of the new Disneynature series, African Cats is an epic true story set in one of the wildest places on Earth: Kenya’s Masai Mara.
The documentary, narrated by Sir Patrick Stewart, follows the story of both lion and cheetah families who teach their cubs the ‘way of the wild’. The film shows the fascinating lives and adventures of Mara, a lovable lion cub; Sita, a tough cheetah mother of five boisterous cubs; and Fang, a leading male lion who must defend his pride from outside males.
This touching film is sure to encourage many families to book a safari holiday this year to see these wonderful characters for themselves.
Parts of the film were shot at one of Kenya’s luxury safari camps, Governors’ Camp. In the heart of the Masai Mara alongside the Mara River, Governors’ Camp offers 37 luxurious tents decorated in authentic safari style complete with en suite bathrooms and their own private verandas.
Governors Camp has also proudly been the home to the BBC’s Big Cat Diary since its inception.
All of the accommodation at Governors’ Camp is situated within the Masai Mara National Reserve so guests can enjoy some of the best game viewing in Africa. All of the guides are experts in the area and the wildlife, and they call the Mara their home.
Governors’ Camp offers some fantastic safari activities in the Masai Mara including traditional game drives in custom built 4 wheel drive land rovers, walking safaris, hot air ballooning and Masai cultural visits. It can also be arranged for guests to enjoy bush breakfasts and dinners as spa treatments in the camp.
On a Kenya safari you can experience the beautiful setting of African Cats and capture the action live on the great plains of the Masai Mara.
