A Life with Elephants


Renowned elephant conservationist and wildlife TV presenter Saba Douglas-Hamilton is coming to Ipswich’s Corn Exchange next month with her “A Life With Elephants” show.

Saba, known to millions for This Wild Life and Big Cat Diaries series, will entertain the audience with exciting animal stories and intimate behind the scenes tales of life in Kenya with her young family which brings her into close contact with some of the most fascinating and rare wildlife in the world. Born in the Great Rift Valley in Kenya she met her first wild elephant when she was just six weeks old, one of 400 living in the Lake Manyara National Park in Tanzania that her father, Iain Douglas-Hamilton, was studying. 

In 1997 she joined her father’s charity, Save The Elephants, and while working in the Samburu National Reserve she was talent-spotted by the BBC, thus beginning her life as a TV presenter and producer of wildlife documentaries.

• The two-hour “A Life with Elephants” show at the Corn Exchange on 21st November, includes a 20-minute interval and a Q&A session. To book tickets contact the Box Office on 01473 433100.
