The witty Nonni and the stuck-up city-boy Harry are the only ones to survive a massacre of a gang of poachers among the gamekeeper's family on his lonesome farm in the savanna. Now the ruthless murderers are after them as the only witnesses. Without a means of transportation, the only way to escape is to walk through two thousand kilometers of Kalahari desert with the help of the African bushman Xhabbo. On the months-long journey ahead, they not only become good friends against their differences, but also realize that every one of them has strength and skills that are required to survive.Written by

Edited for the Disney Channel showing. The hunting scenes were removed and toned down, as was the scene with the man falling out of the helicopter. Also the scenes with any vulgar language was dubbed over. Such as Koba saying "bologna" instead of "bullsh*t". See more »

Not bothered by the book or film at under 13 years old.
I read the book when I was 12/13 years old, having seen the film quite some time before that. I loved the film and the book, so obviously it didn't bother me, and I'm a girl. The book is of course written for an adult readership, and it took me a long time, but I would not have deemed it inappropriate. The same year, I read Forrest Gump, which has plenty of sexual content in some parts and (the movie, which is toned down in that regard if I remember correctly) is rated PG-13. It's really all relative. Certain people can handle more than others, and ratings vary between countries. For example, in Canada, it seems our 14A is equivalent to 18A in the US. It's not up to a governing body to decide how old you have to be to watch something, unless one can't be admitted to a theatre or rent it oneself. Parts of the Wizard of Oz scared the crap out of me when I was a kid, but who do you think it's made for?
