Time & Tickets

Elephants are sensitive, helpful and gentle, but how do they manage to find water sources unerringly? How do these giants communicate with each other? And why do hundreds of them appear at the same time in certain places, as if on a secret command? Africa’s elephants are more intelligent than we ever imagined. What do we really know about them? This film provides intimate insights into the lives of these giants and gets closer to them than ever before.
