Even the surrounding area ( Forests / Lions etc ) are very similar to Africa. If you don’t mind we can give you a similar setting / people etc and you can recreate Africa in India. We have done it earlier & hence writing to you. Attached are pictures of the type of people available ( as many as you wish to have )
