A classic wildlife show well worth seeking out
4 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the US the series was called "The World of Survival" but its original title was "Survival". This is a classic TV documentary that ranks alongside National Geographic. The episode "Garamba: The Impossible Elephants" tells over the 100 year tradition of domesticating African Elephants that was begun under the Belgians in the Congo and has continued to this day. Garamba National Park is a UNESCO Heritage site that is now in dire condition. The grave warnings about the threat of war have come true and now the wildlife, including the tamed elephants and the Congolese families that protect them may not survive into the 21st Century. Watch this show and see how the courage of the dedicated wardens who are trying to protect this corner of Africa.
