Let me just confess that I missed this one; don't even know if it hit the theaters. It flew under my radar and, if it weren't for the Blu-ray and DVD release, I would have never known about it. And it would have been a shame, because "Adventures in Zambezia" rocks! This is one truly entertaining and funny animated movie for the whole family, that come to us from South Africa, of all places.

The story takes place in the beautiful African landscape, where we immediately meet young Kai and his father Tendai, two intrepid falcons that are freely flying in the majestic sky of the savannas and canyons. Tendai is teaching Kai to improve his flying and hunting techniques. The father is a little angry, because his son doesn't follow instructions and is not careful enough. Once they return to their nest, they have an argument, because Kai wants to be more able to explore and see new places. Tendai leaves the nest, and leaves Kai alone for a while. It is at this time that they receive the unexpected visit of one of Tendai's old friends, who is carrying some pigeons with her. She is running away from two vultures-like birds who want to capture the pigeons. Tendai's friend tells Kai that they are on the way to Zambezia, which is the best, safe place to live, a "paradise for birds." Once Tendai returns to the nest, his friend leaves, because they had a disagreement - Tendai had bad memories about Zambezia. Kai, however, wants to go and see that fabulous place, and departs by himself - against his father's will -- in search of this promised land. Once he safely arrives to Zambezia, he discovers that it is indeed a great place. Furthermore, he wants to join "The Hurricanes," the "air force" that protects Zambezia, and which is comprised of the best of the best, the strongest birds in the colony.

Crazy birds, competent animation, and particularly a smashing South African soundtrack....this is one of the lesser known films for the whole family. This is a movie where the story unfolds only between the animals.

A young falcon (Kai) is brought up by his father bird alone in an African desert, but dreams of becoming independent and meeting friends. His father is anxiously overprotective, wants to isolate the young bird from danger, but ultimately Kai learns that somewhere in Africa there is a "bird oasis" - a world where birds flock and are safe from harm. Dad (Tendai) knows about the bird sanctuary...but has never encouraged his son to travel there or learn from the other birds. Curious. Bored and lonely and rebellious, Kai decides to wing it on his own to see Zambezia for himself. Here, the young fellow learns about his birth in Zambezia, falls in love, and struggles to prove himself worthy in the avian community. But there are predatory birds and lizards who have other plans...for the falcon and for Zambezia itself.

I reduced my score from 5 to 4 simply because the plot elements are predictable. Notwithstanding, the animation is done with panache and charm.

Every once in a while, I don't want to watch "Citizen Kane" or some other profound, complex movie. Just want entertainment - Think of this film as a fun adventure, and definitely enjoy the music!

i bought this movie because it was another bird movie such as RIO1,2 and PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR...The main character, KAI(a young falcon) leaves his home to head to a location in the distance named Zambezia, the fabulous city of birds.There he learns that he was born there and was later living out in the open plains area along with his parents but learns that his mom had died while he was an egg...
There are many colorful plumage of birds in this movie. Plus, loved the many various music playing during the movie and at the ending credits rolling-by....

I bought this movie for a friend because I had it myself. I love birds and this is a very cute story. My only complaint was the color of the falcons. Adults are blue and juveniles are brown. So the colors on the father and sun were reversed. But nice story about a young falcon that wants to set off to new lands to find adventure and defend his friends in the process.
