Michaela Strachan and Jonathan Scott return to Kenya to visit the orphaned baby elephants rescued by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. They discover how successfully the Trust’s graduates have survived in the wild and follow the progress of some of the recent recruits.
Jonathan’s reunion with Emily reveals a massive surprise, but he also discovers that Wendi, once the leader of the baby elephants, is now a 4 year-old with an identity crisis. Meanwhile, Michaela catches up with Lualeni who has transformed from a grief-stricken orphan to a mini-matriarch – with an extraordinarily intense bond with the youngest orphan, Makena.
We meet the blind Ndololo; watch a dramatic rescue attempt from a poacher's snare; enjoy a special game of elephant football and in a final twist of the series, track the fate of a newly-rescued tiny orphan baby, found next to his mother's body.
Heart-warming and heartbreaking, the series follows all the dramatic rescues, unpredictable encounters and tentative steps back into the wild.
I purchased this second series of Elephant Diaries after being completely captivated by series number one.
