A compelling series featuring the emotional, dramatic and heart-warming personal stories of wild elephants in Northern Kenya
Like us, they care for friends and family, feel emotion and may even grieve for their dead.
This amazing series – filmed in northern Kenya’s stunning Samburu National Reserve – follows the remarkable lives of wild elephants and the research team trying to help them. From the first faltering steps of new born Breeze to the experiences of an elderly matriarch, it reveals the elephant’s hidden world – the depth of their emotions, their remarkable intelligence, and the intimate complexities of their family life. Cameras follow the work of the world renowned elephant expert Iain Douglas Hamilton and his Save the Elephants team, accompanying them on their exciting missions across northern Kenya, and telling the stories of individual elephants from helpless infants to rampaging bulls and doting mothers.
Among the many incredible sequences we witness some astonishing elephant behaviour; a mother forced to choose between her herd and her injured calf to save his life, and a herd of elephants appearing to mourn the death of a matriarch.
