Beautiful family aaga
7 February 2020 | by rhonda0694See all my reviews

Such a raw and beautiful chronicle of Athena and her family. Elephants are beautiful, loving family oriented creatures. I loved watching their struggle to survive the dry season. I was moved to rears and elated share in their triumphant return to their homeland. Beautifully shot and narrated! A must see!
