TEMBE - Home of the Big Tuskers
Elephants, the largest land mammals in the world, can be found in India, Asia, and Africa. Each continent influences the elephants that live there, resulting in different temperaments, size variations and life adaptations based on the climates, water and food sources. Africa is home to the largest “tuskers” in the world, specifically at Tembe Elephant Park located in the remote north-east part of the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal.

This month's question:
We were recently in the Kruger Park (August 14 to 21, 2009). We stopped when a herd of elephants crossed the road and waited about 15 minutes after that taking photos. As we started to leave a large elephant started trumpeting and headed towards the car. I decided to leave as quickly as possible. About a half km past the herd, I stopped to tell an on-coming car about the agitated elephant. My wife pointed out that the elephant had followed us and was very close to the car. I decided to leave immediately. This is the first time in over 50 years of visiting the park that I have seen this type of aggression. Can you explain?
