NAIROBI, Kenya—The recent release of Disney’s movie African Cats has audiences captivated by the lives of cheetahs and lions that dwell in the wilderness of the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. Travelers with Kenya specialist Bush and Beyond can experience the excitement of seeing the world of these African cats come to life by visiting some of the same places that provided a base of operations as well as filming locations for the movie.
Three unique accommodations located in the Masai Mara provided the operational support to Disney’s film crew, including accommodations, guides, and transportation. Acacia House, Mara House, and Topi House, all owned by company Nomadic Encounters, provided a home base for the Disney film crew as well as the expertise of authentic Masaai guides and wildlife trackers who work at these properties. Bush and Beyond, the central bookings office for these properties along with others located in the Masai Mara and around Kenya and Tanzania, organizes customized Kenya safaris to important locations where the movie was filmed.
Bush and Beyond’s Masai Mara accommodations offer travelers a unique mix of luxury and comfort in a truly ‘wild’ setting. Guests have an opportunity to experience truly authentic cultural encounters with the Masaai while also enjoying the sights and sounds of the African bush with heart-pumping encounters with African wildlife. Participation in community outreach projects, bush picnics, game walks, classic safari wildlife viewing, and gourmet food prepared by expert chefs are also included in the “luxury in the African bush” experience that Bush and Beyond provides their guests with every year.
