Past Tusker - Tshilonde
Photographer unknown

Origin of Name: This impressive bull was named by Dr Ian Whyte after a waterhole situated South East of Shingwedzi Camp where he is often seen. (Tshilonde is the Venda/Tsonga word meaning ‘wound or sore’) The elephant was named after the place, and there is no connection between the meaning of the word and the elephant.
Range: Shingwedzi Restcamp and the area to the SE of it.
