This film gives a remarkable insight into the lives of orphaned baby elephants, saved by local people in Kenya and then raised by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. These elephants have lost their families from one disaster or another and are true orphans. They have been given a new chance in life and, through the eyes of their Kenyan keepers, the film follows them grow until they eventually join up with their wild cousins. This is not just a film about baby elephants but reveals behavior which has never been documented in wild elephant studies.
With unparalleled footage of these remarkable animals, and the dedicated men who look after them, this film is a must-see for all lovers of elephants, Africa and conservation in general.

At my guide's recommendation, I stood off at the end of the visitors' area all by myself. Within minutes one of the calves got curious and came to see why I was all alone. When I picked up some grass she allowed me to feed her; then she started to push against the rope barrier trying to get closer to me. Her keeper was concerned at first - until he realized we were both having a wonderful time. She rubbed my neck with her trunk as I scratched her ears.
This marvelous DVD brought back all the wonderful memories of a very special day. Thank you!
