Spun from the movie Clarence The Cross Eyed Lion, Daktari gave us the further
adventures of vetrinarian/scientist Marshall Thompson and his daughter Cheryl
The years of Daktari were those of the escalation of the Vietnam War among

But it was Africa in its first post colonial years and that part of Daktari was
quite real. Interesting to learn the show was shot at a safari ranch and they
never set foot in Africa.
