Tembe Elephant Park
Tembe is the only place in Zululand where elephants native to the region live in their natural environment. This 30 000ha reserve was created in 1983 on the border with Mozambique to take in animals hunted down by poachers and endangered by civil war. Nowadays about 240 elephants live in this environment of thorn trees, subtropical forest and ponds where they come to drink and splash in the water. The reserve also contains giraffes, white and black rhinos, and a multitude of antelopes.
