Behind the Scenes with Virginia McKenna

We have decided to introduce a series of interviews to our blog with personalities that are of interest to you and passionate about wildlife and safari. Over the next few months we will be talking to designers, producers and wildlife experts.

Our first interview is with actress, author and wildlife campaigner Virginia McKenna OBE. We are privileged to count Virginia and Will among our friends; they share our passion and dedication for the wilderness of Kenya. Virginia's personal experiences of working with Joy and George Adamson in the sixties, to create a film that transformed the general public's understanding of wild animals, as not "wild beasts" but as creatures that we can empathise with - are priceless. She has always been a loyal supporter of Elsa's Kopje and Joy's Camp, and her kindness and generosity has gained her firm friendships with all those in the Elsa's and Joy's community!
