The Adamson Trail By The Luxury Channel

Christian the lion and George Adamson

Christian the lion and George Adamson

Journey through Kenya with Exceptional Travel, escorted by John Rendall, co-author of A Lion Called Christian, the best selling story of the lion Christian, whom he bought from Harrods in London, with fellow Australian Ace Bourke.

Christian lived with John and Ace on the Kings Road in Chelsea but when Christian ‘out grew’ his surroundings, George Adamson (of Born Free fame), accepted the challenge of rehabilitating him back into the wild. Christian was successfully rehabilitated in Kora National Park in Kenya, with George describing it as a “monument to a mischievous and brave little lion from England.”

After successful safaris throughout the last few years, John will lead this unique safari through Kenya again in 2013. As a Trustee of the George Adamson Wildlife Preservation Trust and original co-owner of Christian, there is no better person to showcase the lives of the Adamsons and escort you on safari through Christian’s final home.
