Facts about Tembe Elephant park:

Tembe Elephant Park was proclaimed in 1983 and is 30000 hectares in size. The landscape is made up of ancient ocean floor. Undulated sand dunes which are orientated in a north-south direction are interspersed with depressions with high clay content in certain areas. These clay rich depressions form perennial pans in the rainy season that are continually deepened by elephant and other wildlife species.

Tembe is situated in the Maputaland Centre of Endemism with at least 15 different vegetation types identified. The centre is at the southern end of the tropics in Africa where many tropical species have the southernmost part of their ranges.
