Sir David Attenborough at Porini Camp

As we drove into Porini Camp (Amboseli), a Cessna Caravan with Sir David Attenborough and his BBC crew landed. They were making a documentary on the 'Lion Guardians', about how the Masai warriors now adopt a lion and protect it - rather than killing a lion as a rite of passage to warriorhood.

Sir David Attenborough and his BBC crew coincided with our stay at Porini Camp, Amboseli. They were making a documentary on the ‘Lion Guardians’, about how the Masai warriors now adopt a lion and protect it – rather than killing a lion as a rite of passage. This picture shows (L to R) Wilson Kasaine (Porini Camp naturalist),  Bruce Stark of SafariKenya, Sir David Attenborough, and safari guest, Dominic Court.
