About this book

A typical day for Daphne involves rescuing baby elephants from poachers; finding homes for orphan elephants, all the while campaigning against the possibility that the ivory trade might be re-opened. An African Love Story: Love, Life and Elephants is the incredible memoir of her life. It tells two stories. The first is the Tsavo years, and the extraordinary love story which blossomed when the young Daphne, moved to Tsavo with her first husband and fell head over heels with both the park and its famous warden, David Sheldrick. The second is the love story of how Daphne and David, who devoted their lives to saving elephant orphans, at first losing every infant under the age of two, finally managed to turn things around when Daphne managed to devise the first-ever milk formula which would keep them alive.
