While political boundaries mean the difference between nationalities, and the need for your passport, they mean nothing to the elephants of Sub-Saharan Africa. But these boundaries are becoming fences for the massive travelling herds and so a team of conservationists led by Ian McCallum and Ian Michler embarked on a five-month long trip to address some of the trans-frontier issues. They follow the ancient African elephant migration paths and travel from Namibia to Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and South Africa.
