I have seen a series where a team of scientists made a portal with two science-fiction sticks that gave them the ability to go back in time to the year of their wish, and they took prehistoric creatures back to their camp which was a sort of zoo. They got a mammoth and made it live with elephants.

In the first couple of episodes they go back to the Ice Age and in later episodes they go back to the time of dinosaurs.

This sounds like Prehistoric Park. The second episode dealt with mammoths. His 'time-portal' was basically two metal uprights controlled with a garage opener.

Nigel Marven travels back in time to rescue exotic creatures on the brink of extinction. CGI is used to create animals no longer seen on earth, from woolly mammoths, and T Rex, to dinosaur-eating crocodiles.
