Meet the elephants of Plett Game Reserve

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.

Read how the family came to be together and their road to Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve

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.
