In 1960, Joy Adamson first introduced to the world the story of her life alongside Elsa – the lioness she had rescued as an orphaned cub and raised to adulthood at her home in Kenya. But, as Elsa had been born free, Joy made the heart-breaking decision to return her to the wild.
Born Free is an enchanting, inspirational true story about a truly remarkable relationship, and was the subject of an award-winning 1966 film starring Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers.
