Past Tusker - Mambrrr

Origin of Name: This bull was named by Dr Ian Whyte in memory of “Mambrrr” - Philemon Chauke who was a Research Assistant for many years in the Kruger National Park based in Skukuza. (The origin of his name is obscure, but it is believed to come from a locally brewed South African beverage made from peaches known as “mampoer”. The name should be pronounced with a prominent roll of the rrr’s so as to resemble an elephant greeting rumble.)
Range: Tshokwane/Skukuza area (Salitjie near the Nwatindlopfu drift).
