available at both
Morula. As part of a
learning adventure, visitors accompany the herd on daily foraging treks. Immersed in
elephant life, warm bonds of kinship grow from a newly found appreciation of these
A Herd Of Your Own
You are invited to discover the elephants, from the bristled ends of their long tails to
the tip of their powerful yet sensitive trunks. Marvel at their big ears, thoughtful eyes and enormous padded feet. Trace the textures
of their skin and the silken polish of their ivory. Explore the astonishing bonds of
kinship forged over more than a decade Between the elephants and their
guardians in a wilderness of mesmerising beauty.
A delicate blink of Morula’s long lashes reveals her sensitive yet powerful
personality. Jabu takes you, trunk in hand, with his bold and generous nature and
together you slowly uncover the age-old secrets of the African elephant and the
mysteries of the surrounding wilderness.
Thembi, cute, boisterous and impossible to ignore, infatuates you and transforms your understanding of elephants to a deeper
and more personal level.
“If I learned anything from my time among the elephants, it is the extent to which we
are kin. The warmth of their families makes me feel warm. Their capacity for
delight makes me feel joy. Their ability to learn and understand things is a
It is this continuum between people and elephant that Chadwick writes about
eloquently in his book “ The Fate of the Elephant”.
Elephants can live for 50 years, so when Doug and Sandi Groves adopted Jabu,
Thembi and later Morula, rescuing them from culling operations that had left them
orphans, they knew they were making a life-long commitment to the trio.
Jabu, short for Jabulani, a Zulu name, means happiness and indeed Jabu’s zest
for life is inspiring. Jabu is a proud and handsome bull, who enjoys his role as
alpha elephant of the small herd. He is kind, playful, generous, big-hearted and
dependable. Of the three elephants he is the most independent and confident. Jabu
loves interacting and building solid relationships based on mutual trust and respect. He is predictable and unconditional in his giving. Thembi, is a common Zulu name meaning trust. Thembi is the sweetheart of the herd and the smallest in stature. Perfectly formed, pretty and dainty, Thembi knows a few tricks for getting her way. Smart and very social, she loves to be the centre of attention.
Morula, is named after a beautiful African fruit tree. Her strongest personality trait is
one of great gentleness; she is mildnatured, sensitive and easily bruised
emotionally. She can be described as a wallflower but she blossoms beautifullywhen love and attention are focused directly on her. Morula weaves a powerful
magic of her own as in her quiet and subtle way she captures your heart with
her sincere, loyal and sweet nature.
Living With Elephants
Doug and Sandi Groves have strived to find ways in which their adopted elephants
can act as ambassadors to their wild counterparts. In 1999, the Living With
Elephants Foundation (LWE) was launched as an organisation that could help the
Groves and their trio fulfil their elephant sized dreams.
Living With Elephants Foundation (LWE) is dedicated to relieving conflict and
competition between the African Elephant and human populations in Botswana. You
