African Elephant

The largest land mammal is also one of the most social, and it is very common to see tremendous herds of elephants in Botswana and Namibia. Elephants drink an average of 65 litres of water per day, so it's usually safe to assume that they're congregating near a water source.

Size: Shoulder height up to 4m (male), 3.5m (female); weight 5 to 6.5 tonnes (male), 3 to 3.5 tonnes (female). Distribution: Widely distributed in the region, though large populations occur only in protected areas.
