Tembe Elephant Reserve


... is a 300 square kilometre conservation area backed up against the Mozambique border in the Elephant Coast region of KwaZulu Natal in South Africa.

Set up in 1983 to protect the 'last wild herd of elephant in Natal', the reserve now forms part of a new cross-border conservation area, which should become increasingly interesting over the years to come as wildlife numbers increase.

Essentially a broad flatland of thick dry bush land, although there is a full complement of wildlife here it can be quite hard to spot.

But visitor numbers are wonderfully low, with the numbers of self-drive vehicles being allowed enter the reserve being strictly limited.
