Explore.org: Tembe Elephant Park (Emangusi, South Africa)

Situated in an area that was once the ancient ‘Ivory Route’, linking Mozambique and Zululand, Tembe Elephant Park is renowned for having the largest elephants in Africa – and the planet!

The park’s location is very remote, lying deep in the sand forests and wetlands in northern Tongaland. It borders between KwaZulu-Natal and Mozambique. Along with viewing these gentle giants, you can also spot the rest of the “Big Five” : lions, leopards, black and white rhinos and buffalo. There are also tiny Suni antelope, and a spectacular variety of animals including over 340 bird species. The park consists mainly of closed woodland, but offers a great diversity of vegetation, lying within a transition area between tropical and sub-tropical climates. The camera is situated on the hide at one of the waterholes in the area.
