ELEPHANT REFUGEES follows the triumphs and heartaches of the Moller family as they struggle to provide water to 300-400 elephants a day at their bush lodge in Botswana. We track the stories of elephants who have become regulars at Elephant Sands: the clever one’s who have learned how to turn on the taps in the ablution blocks, and the naughty one’s who pull out pipes, destroy toilets and break into chalets in their search for water. On average, 40 toilets are replaced each month by the local hardware store, located 3 hours from camp.

The biggest financial burden, however, is providing water. In the midst of drought, the watering holes are running dry, and the family, against overwhelming odds, confronts their greatest challenge of all: how to keep the lodge open, the water flowing, and the elephants alive.

 

Today, elephants that have escaped poachers in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Angola and Namibia are fleeing to Botswana by the thousands, seeking sanctuary. Fifty percent of Africa’s total elephant population currently reside in Botswana.
