The African elephant is the biggest land mammal on earth. They are majestic animals that are highly intelligent. They say an elephant never forgets. They have excellent memories and they can remember, in detail, paths that they used decades ago. Elephants live in very complex family herds consisting most of young elephants and females. These herds are headed by a female known as the matriarch. Adult male elephants prefer to wonder in solitude or small bachelor groups. Male elephants are especially dangerous during mating season when their bodies are flooded with testosterone. This makes them highly dangerous and unpredictable. Guests are sure to be entertained when they see these amazing animals during an African safari.

The Cape buffalo is another fascinating animal to observe during a safari. Similarly to the African elephant, these animals live in large herds. They move in a formation where the vulnerable young calves are in the middle of the herd, while the bigger stronger buffalo move at the edge or the herd. Calves travel safely within an impenetrable mass of muscle provided by the buffalo bulls. These animals are highly dangerous and are extremely short tempered. In Africa, few animals are as dangerous as a wounded buffalo. Guests should be extra cautious when they are in close proximity to these great beast when enjoying African safaris.
