He has walked along the Nile River and wandered the Americas, but Levison Wood is about to embark on his greatest journey yet in the upcoming Animal Planet special WALKING WITH ELEPHANTS.
Premiering Tuesday, December 15 at 8pm ET, WALKING WITH ELEPHANTS follows Wood as he tracks the 650-mile migration of African elephants, from the dry Kalahari Desert to the lush Okavango Delta in Botswana.
Joining Wood on his journey is Kane Motswana, a local safari guide and San bushman who grew up in the region.
The journey won't be without its fair share of challenges, as both elephants and men face obstacles from different corners. While the elephants deal with predators, dehydration and poachers, Wood and Motswana have close calls with lions, hippos, crocodiles, and yes, even the elephants.
