Wildes Südafrika - Das Abenteuer

Wildlife filmmaker Thomas Behrend and his team explore South Africa looking for spectacular wildlife stories and natural wonders in an area where two oceans meet and where penguins and lions live close to each other. In the South Eastern Cape they are able to film the youngest member of a herd of elephants: a young bull frolics with other youngsters until the matriarch decides to cross the river. The youngest doesn’t want to follow. How do the elephants react? And can the little one withstand the current?
