Mysterious Creatures Teaser

Mysterious Creatures is an 8 part episodic series of one man’s quest to find and film mysterious creatures, leading him on a journey that helps him and the viewer understand the connections that we, as humans have with the creatures with which we share our planet.  Not all the animals in the series are to be found on Bonamanzi, but the story will begin and end on the basis that Bonamanzi is the source of the inspiration for the series. The contrast of how the featured animals behave in different types of terrain, and the shared behaviours between them, and even with humans, will be emphasised.

going north

I have discovered that the elephants at Bonamanzi are extremely illusive and mysterious, and to some degree, somewhat aggressive. There is no reason for them to be so hard headed when they have no history of abuse or neglect, we have certainly never hurt them and in fact they lead a pretty care free life here on the game reserve. So I headed north to follow other elephants in different regions of the country to monitor their behaviour and this is what I found...

An extract of the series Mysterious Creatures. The pilot episode being on Elusive Elephants and how these magnificent creatures have developed over the centuries to the intelligent creatures they have become. We have a lot in common with them, but also a lot to learn.

crossing borders

Crossing borders during a pandemic is not an easy task but it is possible, the upside is that there are large open spaces with limited tourists and interruptions. A perfect scenario for a quest in searching for the super herds that roam the wild wilderness.

searching for the big herds 

It might sound like an easy thing to do, but searching for a mega herd of elephant is not all what it's made out to be, they're mysterious, stealthy and some of them don't like humans, which can add an interesting dynamic to the equation... if it was easy, everyone would be doing it!
