Bordered between KwaZulu-Natal and Mozambique is the 30,012 hectare Tembe Elephant Park, supported by a delicate forest and grassland ecosystem. Established in 1983 as a protection for the wild animals that thrive in the Pongolo flood plain, the park now supports over 220 of the largest elephants in the world, over 430 species of exotic birds, the Big Five, and South Africa’s largest heard of Suni antelope (one of the smallest antelope in the world).
Tembe is also home to lion, leopard, black and white rhino, wild buffalo and the largest herd of elephants in South Africa (the last remaining indigenous herd of the KwaZulu Natal). To maintain these incredible numbers and sustain diversity, the Tembe Elephant Park only allows 10 visitors by day in a 4X4 vehicles.
