Tarangire National Park is known the world over for their elephants. The park is home to many African elephants per square kilometer than anywhere else in the world. Elephants learn what to eat by sampling food items from the mouths of their relatives.
Elephant families walk in close proximity of each other, providing care and reassurance to infants and calves.
