George Adamson in Kora
"Kora is amazing. Kora is very wild. George's camp there is being restored, and it is the hope that, one day, people will be able to visit and see where George lived and where he is buried; Boy [a lion he worked with], George's brother Terrance and George himself are buried there. You can visit their graves, which I have done more than once. It is a very moving place because you are just in the middle of nowhere, and you can feel the history of George's life there. It is a privilege to go; it really is.
