Great movie!!!
18 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been searching for this movie for years!

I remember watching it over and over again when I was little. The storyline and scenery were both just fascinating to me. Michael York was perfect. His accent is hard not to love! This movie contained both comedy and drama. I liked watching the family get use to their new living arrangements. It also taught children how awful poaching is. It is perfect for all ages. The lion cubs were too cute.

I could still sit here and remember scenes from the movie, and I haven't seen it in over 15 years. I would buy it in a heartbeat if they ever put it out on DVD!!!!
