A renowned elephant conservationist and wildlife TV presenter is coming to Ipswich to entertain an audience with her wild tales.

Saba Douglas-Hamilton, known to millions for This Wild Life and Big Cat Diaries series, will bring her two-hour show, A Life with Elephants, to the Corn Exchange on Tuesday, November 21.

She was born in the Great Rift Valley in Kenya and met her first wild elephant when she was just six weeks old. It was one of 400 living in the Lake Manyara National Park in Tanzania that her father, Iain Douglas-Hamilton, was studying.

In 1997 she joined his charity, Save The Elephants, and while working in the Samburu National Reserve was talent-spotted by the BBC, launching her career as a TV presenter and producer of wildlife documentaries.

The show starts at 7.30pm and includes a 20-minute interval Q&A session.
