Searching for something more than her high-flying IT-executive life was offering her, Sharon Pincott traded her privileged First World existence to start a new life with the Presidential Elephants of Zimbabwe â€“ the countryâ€™s flagship clan of over 450 wild elephants. She knew nothing of Zimbabweâ€™s ways; she was unpaid, untrained, self-funded and arrived with the starry-eyed air of most foreigners.
For more than a decade, this passionate wildlife conservationist has lived in the Hwange bush among the Presidential Elephants of Zimbabwe â€“ a celebrated clan of wild elephants that she is devoted to and will do anything to protect. One minute sheâ€™s cherishing incredibly intimate encounters with these gentle giants, the next sheâ€™s accused of being a spy and then her name appears on a Zimbabwe police wanted-persons list. While things often seem to go from bad to worse, she relentlessly perseveres in the face of overwhelming odds to stick by the elephants she so obviously loves.
