The Last Giants: The Rise and Fall of the African Elephant
In The Last Giants, Levison Wood teams up with local trackers to gain insight into how this iconic species survives, camps out in the wild, meets the people and tribes living on the migration’s path, and joins the park rangers whose job it is to protect these land goliaths.
Note: Our company’s mascot and namesake is Tantor, the African elephant from Tarzan, so it would be amiss not to highlight THE LAST GIANTS. Travel writer, Levison Wood, has previously taken us to the Himalayas, Arabia, the Americas, and the Nile, and now turns from the landscape to the living to teach us about these beautiful creatures. Narrated by the author. -Jenn Eschrich
