African Elephants

(Loxodonta africana)
The African elephant is the largest land mammal on earth, but these gentle giants are listed as vulnerable by IUCN due to widespread poaching for their ivory. Elephants have a complex social structure, and live in herds led by a matriarch, or dominant female. Traditionally, they follow seasonal migration patterns, travelling huge distances to find food and water. As such, there is no resident population of elephants on Ol Pejeta, but there can be up to 300 at any one time.
