Later on, visit Elephants at David Sheldrick Elephants live in herds, which are highly organized social groups of 6-20 elephants led and guided by an older female leader, called a matriarch. As the leader of the herd, a matriarch will make all the decisions for the herd - including what to eat, where to sleep and where to go. Female elephants stay with the herd for their entire lives meaning a matriarch acts as a grandmother and/or mother to most of the herd members that include several generations of female relatives (aunts, sisters and cousins). Males (called bull elephants) will only stay with their family until adolescence (around 14 years old) when they venture out on their own and spend most of their lives alone or with other bulls. As well as being the largest land mammal, elephants have the longest gestation period of all animals at 22 months. After the birth, a calf will stay very close to its mother for the first few years, who will nurse her calf for around 4 years. During this time, infant elephants are milk dependent and cannot live more than a few weeks without milk, although they do start to eat vegetation at just a few months of age. The progression of elephants’ mirrors the development of humans and as elephants are extremely tactile, calves need to be touched every few seconds for reassurance, and often suck on their trunks for comfort, just like babies suck their thumbs. Next point will be visiting a beads and leather factory where a group of women empowerment program as they make jewery from start to the end. you will enjoy a nice song by these women.
