Plot Summary

There is a crisis of elephantine proportions playing out in the dry sandy Kalahari woodlands of eastern Botswana. A determined family of caring people is caught in the middle of the drama. Life changed forever for the family when climate change intensified the frequent droughts, and hundreds of elephants arrived at Elephant Sands Bush Camp to drink water from the ancient pan. For the past 50 years international crime syndicates have poached wildlife through out Africa in shocking quantities - forcing the elephants to flee for their lives using the ancient elephant pathways. When Botswana became a poacher-free zone in 2014, the news quickly spread from one elephant family to another, sparking a great migration. We don't know how elephants communicate over hundreds of miles, but they do. Sixty per cent of Africa's elephants now live in Botswana. In 2019, Botswana lifted the 5-year ban on elephant hunting. Currently, Southern Africa is experiencing the worst drought in living memory. Written by Louise Hogarth
