Reviews

The little elephant orphans are back! It's time to catch up on some old friends and meet some new ones as they face some of the biggest challenges of their short lives.

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 would agree with the last review, this series is excellent. It is worth knowing though that if you purchase this from Amazon, NO money goes to the charity. If you buy this DVD direct from the David Sheldrick Willdife Trust, all profits go to the charity and so to the elephants they are helping.

At long last series 2 of the BBC's Elephant Diaries is released on DVD. Here we catch up with the progress made by the orphans met in series 1 and also meet new babies who, sadly, come into the orphanage all too regularly, having lost their families due to poaching, accidents, natural causes or the interference of man ... eg babies falling into wells. There are some heartbreaking moments as not all the babies survive, but the dedication and love lavished upon the orphans by the Sheldrick family and the team of keepers is awe-inspiring and inspirational. Daphne Sheldrick is an amazing woman and the importance of the work done by the Trust that carries her late husband's name cannot be stressed enough. Please support them, either by buying the DVD and other products from their website and/or by getting involved and adopting an orphan. I'm now foster mum to 6 baby elephants and 1 tiny rhino - and the temptation is always there to add more to my mini herd! It's the best thing I've ever done and the Trust keeps you involved and makes you feel part of an extended family. Elephants are incredible animals and are under increased pressure once more from poaching with the appalling change in the rules regarding the trade in ivory. Please help protect them. Buy both series of Elephant Diaries, you won't be disappointed. And please, BBC, it's way past time for series 3 and/or some follow ups on the progress of the orphans we have come to know and love.

Recently shown on BBC and shown again on Eden. It is the best series I have ever seen. My partner and I adopted 2 elephants on the back of watching Series 1 and have been waiting for what seems like ages for Series 2 to come out.

You will be surprised by how moved you are by the series. The work the David Sheldrick trust is doing is amazing. You will instantly fall in love with these elephants as you follow them from being rescued, growing up in a young herd and gradually getting used to going back into the wild with confidence.

You will not be disappointed with this purchase and if your like us, you will hope another series comes out soon.

When I discovered that my iMac could change between Region Codes (I'm in the U.S.), I ordered this set right away! Though I'm a bit put off by Jonathon's and Michaela's breathless, dramatic narration stlyes, I really enjoyed these programs. The stories of the orphaned elephants from rescue to release are interesting enough. Though difficult to watch, the segments involving the deaths of some of the baby elephants, provides an honest look at the reality of raising orphaned wildlife, the commitment and skill of the staff, and the level of international support they have. If you're having a bad day, watching baby eles, ears spread wide, miniature trunks outstretched, chasing warthogs, will make you laugh and give you a lift.
