The largest African Elephant at the park, called Isilo, died of natural causes in 2015 and is thought to have been around 50 years old. He had tusks 2,5mtrs long and weighing more than 60kgs.

Apart from its magnificent elephants, it is home to the rest of the Big Five – namely – leopard, lion, buffalo and rhino as well as more than 340 species of birds. Tembe also has many antelope species, including the shy Suni, Africa’s smallest antelope as well as giraffe, wildebeest and a host of other small mammals, reptiles and insects.
