Storyline

Join renowned wildlife filmmakers Dereck Joubert and Beverly Joubert as they capture the drama of Africa's largest free-roaming elephant herds on their timeless journey across the bush country of northern Botswana. Two years in the making, this remarkable documentary reveals extraordinary elephant behavior never before filmed. You'll see the rare adoption of an abandoned infant, the organized rescue of a calf in danger or drowning, and the haunting way bull elephants mourn the death of an aged companion. You'll also witness an encounter between a young elephant and adolescent lions that even surprised the filmmakers. Come with National Geographic on a journey you'll never forget - to a place where nature still rules and the elephant is king. Written by Jwelch5742

A sadly compelling and tender look at African elephants.
11 June 2004 | by uaandubSee all my reviews

A beautifully realized documentary,that follows a herd of African elephants as they search for food and water on the great plains of Africa, led by their indomitable matriarch. Once the continent teemed with this magnificent species; but now encroaching civilization, poaching and drought are moving wild elephants to the edge of extinction. Filmed by a husband and wife team who specialize in nature documentaries, Reflections on Elephants combines incredible footage with a touching script that is enhanced by Narrator Stacy Keach. Sentimental, but never maudlin; this is a first rate production on all fronts, and a compelling look at a magnificent and intelligent species, that we as fellow inhabitants of this planet, cannot let slip away.
