Walking with Elephants

Author and explorer Levison Wood embarks on an epic 650-mile journey on foot, following the annual migration of Botswana’s 130,000 elephants. Together with Kane, a San bushman guide, Lev gets up close and personal for the first time with a group of orphans and takes part in an ancient ceremony before setting off into the bush in search of a herd to follow. Following potentially dangerous encounters with a buffalo and a pride of lions, Lev finds his first herd, but is forced to leave them alone when one threatens to charge. Lev and Kane spend the night with local villagers, learning about the dangers elephants pose to their crops and lives, before setting off the next morning in search of a new herd to follow.
