Episode Information

An elephant calf called Little E is born into a family trying to survive in one of Kenya’s most iconic landscapes – The Maasai Mara. Unfortunately for the herd, drought is setting in, and the family’s forced to keep on the move in search of food and water. Lions, hippos and even men interrupt their quest, but each challenge is overcome with thoughtful purpose and at times, surprising humor. By the time their journey ends, their actions testify not only to an intelligent and loving nature that rivals our own, but also to a message we can all relate to: there's nothing quite like family.
