Our two elephants, Damara and Nzewe are both sub-adult males who arrived at Plumari in Sept 2006.
They were born and living as wild elephant on a private game reserve in Limpopo Province which at the time was about 50% overpopulated with elephants. Threatened with being culled, Damara and Nzewe were acquired by Elephants for Africa Forever ("EFAF") and put into their licensed training programme. Upon satisfactory completion, they were relocated to Askari Lodge.
The Plumari Africa Game Reserve, in which Askari Lodge is situated, comprises a pristine malaria free wilderness area of over 5000 hectares. The Reserve boasts an amazing natural African bushveld with an abundance of flora, fauna, birdlife and wildlife.
Two game drives, each approximately 2 hours in duration, are scheduled daily. Late afternoon drives will involve a sundowner, with a fantastic view towards the end of the drive.
