Do you feel the Christmas spirit yet? Holiday in the Wild, Netflix's new romantic comedy starring Rob Lowe and Kristin Davis, can help put you in the mood. Filmed in Zambia and South Africa, the movie features two of our favorite year-round safari locations, and calls attention to the ongoing conservation efforts in the region. Go ahead, settle in for a feel-good flick that will leave you longing for a luxury Tanzania safari for two.

Christmas on Safari

Experience a whole new take on togetherness on safari, whether you travel with your partner or bring along the whole family. December is summer in the southern hemisphere, so while your Christmas might not be white, it will be colorful thanks to occasional rains. Read more about why we love December safaris, and why South Africa is a great pick for your year-end holidays.


One of the filming locations of Holiday in the Wild, Jabulani has a long history of supporting wildlife conservation efforts. The Kapama Game Reserve surrounding Jabulani helps set the safari scene. A few members of the Jabulani Herd of resident elephants even make cameo appearances in the film. Explore more safari locations in South Africa that make conservation their top priority >>

Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

In addition to her work with Oxfam, Holiday in the Wild star Kristin Davis proudly supports the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. The trust’s main conservation activity is the Orphan’s Project for elephant and rhino rescue and rehabilitation. To date, the trust has successfully hand-raised more than 240 infant elephants and reintegrated orphans back into the wild herds of Tsavo. A visit to the Orphan's Project nursery with Ker & Downey offers the unique opportunity to watch conservation in action.
