Mahout: The Great Elephant Walk

Overview

Being a mahout - an elephant rider, trainer, and keeper - is an incredibly demanding job that many in the Western world know little about. In Mahout: The Great Elephant Walk, we get a look into the incredible bond between mahout and elephant, and see the life-changing work that mahouts do every day.

This documentary, narrated by Stephen Fry, follows the journey of mahouts and four elephants as they are moved between two of Nepal's largest national parks, to ensure they can live a happy, semi-wild life undisturbed by people.

Mahouts ride their elephants and act as one being. The elephants understand and respect the command of their mahout, and the mahout lives their life ensuring the elephant is safe, happy, and cared for. With wild elephant numbers dropping across the world, understanding how mahouts work is key to the longevity of this majestic animal.

"Elephants are gods too, aren't they? For this reason, we who are still living serve and look after them."
