African Elephant bull - this is what Africans call a Tusker. A very large bull
Rainforests to deserts, swamps to seashores, Montane forests to savannah and bushveldt.
We saw this bull along with 20 to 30 others at the Tembe Elephant Park in northeastern Kwa-Zulu Natal province near the border with Mozambique. This reserve was created to save a large free roaming Elephant herd from being killed or used for target practice during the fighing in Mozambique. The Zulu donated the land and when the herd migrated south across the border from Mozambique they were fenced in and are now protected.
