Safari in Serengeti
The Serengeti inspired the Pride Lands
The Pride Lands film setting is a reflection of the Serengeti (which means “endless plains’’ in Swahili). When you drive through the Serengeti, the resemblance is easy to see. The savannah is teeming with herds of zebra, impala, and wildebeest, while among the long grasses cheetah and lions stalk their prey – the circle of life in action.Nearby, the Olduvai Gorge supposedly served as inspiration for the spot where Mufasa was trampled by wildebeest. The gorge is a significant archaeological site where Mary Leakey discovered a 1.8 million-year-old hominid skull.
Several characters’ names are Swahili words
Discovering the meanings of the characters’ names can help you learn some Swahili vocabulary.
– Simba means lion.
– Rafiki means friend.
– Pumbaa means foolish or silly.
– Shenzi means savage while Banzai means to skulk or lurk.
This area is known as the old part of Zanzibar, located on the Western coast of Unguja, the main island of the Zanzibar Archipelago. It was seen as the centre of the spice and East African slave trade in the 19th century.
