The Ghost and the Darkness (1996) is a true historical adventure horror film about the two lions that attacked and killed workers at Tsavo, Kenya during the construction of the Uganda-Mombasa Railway in 1898.

Apparently, the film was shot at Songimvelo Game Reserve in South Africa, rather than in Kenya. It features Michael Douglas and Val Kilmer, but many Maasai characters were portrayed by South African actors.

However, the Maasai depicted during the hunt were portrayed by real Maasai warriors who were hired and taken to South Africa for the movie.

Why the film was shot in South Africa rather than in Kenya? If a similar film was to be made to day, would be shot be in another country rather than Kenya for the same reasons?

Me no likey Michael Douglas' eyes .....

They are creepy even when the movie is not about "darkness" or "ghosts"

Oh yeah, I forgot, we are talking about why the film was not shot in Kenya

But well, even if the film was shot in Kenya, those eyes will still be creepy

...so :confused2:

The film was shot mainly on location at Songimvelo Game Reserve in South Africa, rather than Kenya, due to tax laws-Wikipedia

Good movie, but not for kids kama ulivyokuwa.

I think the sound effects of the film won an Oscar

Unapenda "Petals of Blood" na violence eh?
