Yes, the elephant twins are still in good condition and now at about 3 months of age.

They have been sighted regularly by River Bend lodge staff, often suckling at the same time for periods of up to 10 minutes.

Their good condition can be attributed to the good rains we have received in the last 3 months, providing plenty of vegetation and water for the elephant herd in that area.

Megan,
Can you keep us up-to-date on the black rhino's?
I'm very interested in the progress, hope they will make it, and give you the knowledge to do this on a regular basis.

(For those who haven't read it, read here.

The two rhino calves are doing well so far, exploring their new territory. We are monitoring their movements and behaviour and so far they seem to be quite relaxed in their new home.

The twin elephants are located in the Nyathi concession area of the park. This means that you only have the chance of seeing them if you stay at the River Bend lodge located in this area or if you go on one of the Addo horse trails. The area is not open to tourist cars.

Hi Sharky,

The name of the Genet have changed. In Addo's latest map the name is small spotted cat.

Hi Jaap,

The Ellies chased to poor fellow away because there was a little Ellie amongst the herd :( He was very thirsty but ran off to another place to drink.

Did anyone see the special 50/50 had on the Addo lions and how they are settling in in the park - it was great, I just wish that Aardlam will kick sand in the eyes of the older lioness and have the first cubs just to show her how things are done!
Can't wait.

Both the twin elephants and the two rhino calves are healthy and in good condition.

The rhino calves have settled down well in their new environment and seem to have adapted well to freedom.

The two lionesses were seen together today, near the main camp waterhole / Nyathi waterhole.

The younger lioness appears to be pregnant.

Good sign that they are together, although this does not mean they will stay together. If they do, they would be able to assist each other to protect cubs.
