Hi,

This could possibly be one of the Big Tuskers, which I saw at the end of January. If so could you ID it.

Thanks RosemaryH,

Nice to know it is one of the Big Tuskers. Any idea what the meaning of the name is?

Thanks Elsa.

The magic of modern technology. It sounds like the elephant is not camera shy. He certainly seemed to pose for a photograph when I saw him.

Number 2 (we were lucky) was a week or so later - I think this one might be N'watindlopfu - same story - three with cameras so lots of photos available
