Second, in Africa, a herd of African elephants makes its way across the scorched Kalahari Desert in an effort to reach the water-rich Okavango Delta. The third of Earth's trio of tales is about a humpback whale and her calf and their incredible 4,000-mile trek from the Earth's tropical waters to the frozen tundra of Antarctica.
