I only want to say that the previous reviewer is not correct. This is fabulous, entertaining and well-done family film. I highly recommend it! Just seeing the real Africa and not a Hollywood set is reason enough to see this film. Also, please note that this film was made into a good TV series: "Daktari". Yes, Richard Hayden is the best thing in the movie! What a great comedic actor!
Perhap some might not like the movie because it is simple, straight-forward and charming. It is a kids movie that adults will like too!
I saw this in the theater when I was a child and watched the TV show too.
One of my favorite shows as a kid.
