Elephants family in Maasai Mara

Elephants family in Maasai Mara

Elephants are highly sociable and have similar life cycles to humans. The maternity herd is very protective of young, but males are ejected at 12-15 years old, after which they become nomadic males, often associating with other males.

Elephants have strong bonds and even at 9yrs old a calf may spend over half of the time less than 5metres away from it mother.

The Mara elephants have unfortunately been under threat due to poaching and human-elephant conflicts.
