BBC Series ‘This Wild Life’ Out in Norway

The much anticipated ‘This Wild Life’ has hit TV screens in Norway. The ten part BBC series starring Saba Douglas-Hamilton, daughter of well known elephant conservationists, Iain and Oria, gives a glimpse of the exciting life and conservation work in the bush with her husband, Frank Pope, and their three young children. Filmed in Samburu National Reserve, the series captures the cutting edge science done by Save the Elephants which includes collaring, monitoring and collecting data from the Samburu herds – the most closely researched group of elephants in the world. Also featured in the documentary is Elephant Watch Camp, the unique eco-luxury camp created by Oria, which Saba runs in between saving elephants, being a filmmaker, conservationist, loving mum and wife. We welcome all our Norwegian friends to come and experience ‘This REAL Wild Life’ in Samburu, Northern Kenya first hand and spend some days at Elephant Watch Camp. Don’t miss this once in a lifetime chance!   Photocredit: Tim...

Within days the dry earth turned into a carpet of green grass, wild flowers adorned the bushes and shrubs, and just as fast, news of big events was being carefully organised.

Everywhere something seemed to be on a race to reproduce…and even the birds songs were clear as a note in a chapel. Activities at Save the Elephants Research Centre looked as if a wedding was about to take place – as wall after wall came alive with images and information and multiple birds nest hung from the ceiling.

I hoped the little terrapins got out fast. Would we be able to get ready for the day. The camp is now open, a cool wind blows, the river flows, and wake up call drifts down from the trees at dawn, a serenade of bird song dawn with a cup of hot organic coffee trees…sunlight pierces through the nests and a great sense of peace takes over…one barely dares to speak.
