  1. Such a powerful image. Am I right in assuming this is the oldest female leading the pack? Posted 7 years ago
    1. Yes correct and she was having a good look at us - you can see her tiny baby right behind her as a little grey blob!

The African bush elephant is the larger of the two species of African elephant. Both it and the African forest elephant have usually been classified as a single species, known simply as the African elephant, but recent evidence has seen the forest elephant classified as a distinct species . Some authorities still consider the currently available evidence as insufficient for splitting African elephants into two species.
