From warring tribes to ivory poachers, conservationist and elephant expert, Saba Douglas Hamilton, takes you on a wild and precipitous journey, meandering from Kenya to the Congo, Namibia to St Tropez, to share the trials and triumphs of what it takes to save a single species - the African elephant.
Saba vividly brings to life our fight for nature with moving insights from her life amongst elephants, her childhood in the wild and work as a wildlife filmmaker. This tale of unlikely heroes fighting against the odds is one of courage, hope, compassion and humour - that cannot fail to inspire us all.
