MPAA Rated PG for some wild animal action and brief language

Sex & Nudity

  • A man is seen wearing pajama pants without a shirt in some scenes.
  • A lioness is mentioned to be "in season" (the animal equivalent to ovulating).

Violence & Gore

  • A man-eating lion kills a woman washing her clothes in a river. The camera cuts to a shot of the river before she is attacked, and the water turns red.
  • Lions are shot throughout the movie, and although no blood is shown, we do briefly see their bodies/skins.
  • Lions are seen hunting and eating other animals. Little blood is shown.
  • A young lioness is attacked by another animal offscreen, and is covered in scratches. While tending her wounds, a man's hands get blood on them.
  • Two lions fight savagely near the end of the film, but neither is injured.


  • Very mild and infrequent (i.e. damn, hell)

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • The lioness's caretakers and other people are occasionally seen casually drinking or smoking.
  • A man takes too much malaria medication and has some sort of fit, but he gets better.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A man-eating lion kills a woman.
  • The man hired to get rid of the man-eating lion shoots it, and is forced to shoot its mate in self-defense. We then learn that the lioness was trying to protect her cubs.
  • The lead couple's pet rock hyrax (a small, furry animal) dies of natural causes.
  • The elephant stampede is somewhat intense.
  • The lead couple bond with Elsa the lioness as if she were their child, so the idea of having to either send her to a zoo or set her free is sad.
  • A man recovering from malaria has some kind of fit after taking too much medication, and his wife worries he might die.
  • The animal violence, though less graphic than the average nature documentary aired on TV today, may upset sensitive children, though this user believes that this film would be a good way to introduce children to the realities of nature without traumatizing them.
