Disney’s latest remake of The Lion King premieres this month. The fresh take on Disney’s seventh highest-grossing film of all time has audiences around the world waiting in anticipation.

We are immensely proud to say that Asilia was Disney’s partner when their team filmed on location in Kenyain early 2017 as well as earlier this year.We showed them around for more than 2 weeks, guided by Asilia’s pro-guide and camp manager Roelof Schutte. The Disney team shot a diverse range of locations including the Aberdares, Lake Magadi, northern Kenya, Mt Kenya and of course the Masai Mara.
