George Adamson is already famous for the part he played in the epic of Elsa, the Kenya lioness, and her cubs; but only five years of his life were occupied in this way. He spent twenty-three adventurous years as a Game Warden in Kenya before becoming involved with Elsa.

Some months later, four cubs were given to him and with this pride he has settled in the bush where today he is caring for the first and second generation of lions
