Origin of Name: Named in honor of Johan Kloppers who served 36 years in conservation in the Kruger National Park (Madolo meaning ‘Knee’s’, was given to Johan due to his penchant for walking. According to staff who knew him well he inherited this name due to his unique stride when walking)

This is Madolo, the ear markings are correct as well as the location, he is also seen in the Sabie Sands. Another key feature is his tusks, you can see they almost have a chiselled look to them from the side.

Great to know that our Modolo is in fact Modolo! :dance:
