The incredible, true-life story of a baby elephant born into a rescue camp in the wilderness of Botswana. When she’s suddenly orphaned at six weeks of age, it’s up to the men who look after her herd to save her life.

Born on an incredibly starry summer night in 2013, Naledi (which means ‘star’ in Setswana) was orphaned just six weeks later when her mother passed away in January 2014. This meant that immediate action had to be taken to both comfort Naledi and save her life. It took a dedicated team of men working around the clock to nurse her back to health. Naledi has a rambunctious yet loving personality and deep bonds with the men at the rescue camp as well as the female elephants of the rescue camp herd.
