Africa's Elephant Kingdom!
12 July 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This is a very good Documentary with good narration by Avery Brooks. I think that all of the filming of the wonderful animals is really great. I knew some things about the African Elephant but by watching this video I learned a whole lot more! I did not know how smart Elephants are. One of the things I thought was remarkable was when two males fight for the female they go into a fight and the thing is they actually know that the are going to get hurt or even die in the battle. Another thing is how the Elephants stay together as family. The video clips of the leader Elephant charging when threatened was really awesome! This video in so interesting, sad, great, entertaining, funny, and exciting all at the same time. There is some death in this feature but it is not by man. If you love Elephants and want to see how intelligent these creatures are and the cute as well as the great things they do in the wild then I strongly recommend you watch this today because I don't think you can watch anything more informal!

Movie Nuttball's NOTE:

I love most animals in the world and I dislike people harming animals and the poachers killing innocent creatures. One day I would like man to be the hunted. This is just how I feel. Thank you for reading!
