Out of AfricaDecember 31, 2013: When we got to Crescent Island, we marveled out how much it looked just like the movie _Out_of_Africa_. That's when our guide let us know that this site is actually where the movie was filmed. Animals were imported to the island and left there after filming.
Interestingly, no predators were brought to Crescent Island, so it's one of the few places in Africa where you can safari outside of a vehicle with some safety. It's actually a great place for a picnic, which is what we did.
