It has been about six weeks since our precious herd of elephants arrived at Plett Game Reserve from the Knysna Elephant Park and we are pleased to report that the family is settling in well in their new 2000 hectare home. We thought we would take the opportunity to introduce you to the individuals that make up this very special herd.
The adult males:
Harry, (27) whose name means protector of the home was originally translocated from the Kruger National Park and is Dad to Tembi with Tosha. Namib (27) whose name is derived from Namibia as he is from Windhoek and Gambo (17) is from Hoedspruit in Limpopo Province. These bulls formed the base of the family that welcomed the four youngsters: Mpho, Lundi, Kito & Ntombi to the Knysna Elephant Park.
Mom & baby
Tosha (27) is Mom to baby Tembi (3). Tosha’s name is derived from Etosha, the Namibian National Park as she is also from Windhoek in Namibia. Tembi, meaning Hope, was born at Elephants of Eden to Tosha and dad, Harry.
