What species you can expect to see

on your safari you will catch sight of the African elephant 

African elephants are listed as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). One of the biggest threats to elephant populations is the ivory trade, as the animals are poached for their ivory tusks. Other threats to wild elephants include habitat destruction and conflicts with local people.

African elephants have larger ears, a concave back, more wrinkled skin, a sloping abdomen, and two finger-like extensions at the tip of the trunk.  In general, African elephants are larger than their Asian cousins. Floppier ears and trunks of African elephant babies make them a bushtrek favourite. The savanna or bush elephant - is the largest living terrestrial animal, and the forest elephant - has smaller and more rounded ears and thinner and straighter tusks.

When on safari, spot unusual behaviour, mourning a dead elephant, salt licks in evenings, stripping of bark off trees.
