It is with deep sadness and regret that Tembe Elephant Park has announced the death of Isilo the elephant. Isilo died a natural death of old age in the south-west section of the park in an area known to be his home range.

He is thought to have died in January this year however dense foliage and few roads through this lesser-known game reserve resulted in his carcass only being discovered about two weeks ago. Unfortunately his magnificent tusks had already been stolen by suspected rhino poachers.
