Saba Douglas-Hamilton

Saba Douglas-Hamilton is an award-winning filmmaker, TV host and conservationist. As an accomplished TV presenter, her best-known work is Secret Life of Elephants and Big Cat Diary. Today she spends her time at Elephant Watch Camp in Samburu and has recently returned to filmmaking to work on a twelve-part series for the BBC – This Wild Life.

Her childhood was spent travelling around East Africa while her parents battled to save elephants from the illegal ivory trade. Her parents’ passion for wildlife conservation rubbed off and after graduating from university, she started work for Save the Rhino Trust, Namibia, where she ran a community conservation project to protect the rare desert-adapted black rhino. She later joined Save the Elephants in Kenya, where she helped set up a research station in Samburu that now monitors a population of over 900 elephants.

Saba has led tours for Steppes in the past to allow our clients to travel and experience elephant conservation first-hand. If you would like to Saba for an insight into the fulfilling work of elephant conservation in Kenya please get in touch.
