Sadly in August 1989 George Adamson was murdered in Kenya, East Africa by Somalian bandits when he went to the rescue of a young European tourist in the Kora Reserve. He was a unique and wonderful gentleman who devoted his life to helping wildlife and to protecting the unique environment in which they lived. He lived a rugged life style in a bush camp with only a few modern conveniences.

He was a Hero to the end .... giving his life to save another!
