Tembe Elephant park where the wild elephants still roam is situated between the Zululand and Mozambique. Tembe Elephant park is home to Africa’s largest elephants as well as the smallest antelope - such as the suni.

The park is a Big Five reserve, with definite elephant and buffalo sighting. However, Tembe Elephant Park is also habitat to many different types of other animals such as the high-stepping antelope, warthog, porcupine, meerkat, scarab, giraffe and zebra.

Tembe is a paradise for bird-watchers - with approximately more than 340 species. Expect to witness lifters such as rare Plain-backed Sunbird, African Broadbill, Rudd’s Apalis, Rufous-bellied Heron and Natal Nightjar. However, there are also the migratory species such as Steppe Eagle, small mammals and reptile.

In an open game drive, travellers will be taken where the elephants find the tastiest morsels, as well as you will encounter the tall trees where the giraffe graze, Cape buffalo and lions. The guides will also introduce you to Tembe’s African culture and traditions.
