  1. As a safari goer of many times over, i was really looking forward to this film. It turned out to be a ' Blair witch' type of film but set in the savannahs of South Africa.

    Incredibly predictable, it re-enforces every possible stereotype of Americans abroad..a bunch of tourists go on safari, act like spoilt brats who demand privilege whilst on safari.

    The truth element of this film is a little more chilling…Safari tour organisers in South Africa have little or no ethical attitude towards guiding wealthy foreigners, and it is this toxic combination that sets the tone for the film. Unable to see lions as demanded by the tourists ( how DARE the lions don't show up, we came from LA!) the corrupted guide takes them off the national park grid and into wild territory where a series of encounters with momma nature sees them pretty much picked off one by one.

    This would never ever happen on a Kenyan Safari…any tourist who leaves the safari vehicle would go to jail, end of story.

    2 stars because the female tourists in the cast were quiet attractive, and their respective boyfriends the Neanderthal frat boys that leave you wondering what these women see in them. Avoid this film.
