Award-winning actress and founder of the Born Free Foundation, Virginia McKenna, will return to the small screen and Kenya this Sunday, 23 October in Virginia McKenna’s Born Free, the one off Channel 4 documentary airing at 7pm.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the film adaption of Joy Adamson’s autobiographical book “Born Free” in which Virginia McKenna and her late husband, Bill Travers, play Joy and her husband, George.
The famous film follows the endearing story of how Joy and George Adamson raised Elsa the Lioness, an orphaned lion cub, to adulthood and released her into the wilderness of Kenya where she successfully made the transition back in to the wild.
Viewers hearing the call of the Kenyan wilds should book a seat on our 18-day Mountain Gorillas to the Mara, the camping overland tour including games drives in the Lake Nakuru National Park and Masai Mara Game Reserve.
Book by 31 October and we’ll throw in a 15% discount on the 10th of December departure.
