Limpopo's Adoption Barometer

Limpopo is adopted by individual supporters of GoodFund.


You can see how much we still need for the full adoption of Limpopo in the Adoption Barometer. At this moment <%=iPercentage%>% of Limpopo is already adopted!


Limpopo is a 35 year old female elephant and she lives in the Limpopo Peace Park. Limpopo weighs approximately 3000 kilo’s and she’s got a little baby.

Limpopo and her baby are part of a breeding herd of twelve elephants. The herd consists of mostly cows and their calves and two bulls, one of whom is Jumbo.

Elephant Update

Dr. Markus-Hofmeyr
In the Great Limpopo Peace Park a helicopter took to the air to track Limpopo, Tembo, Jumbo and Espero. They took off from Skukuza in the Kruger National Park and flew east towards Mozambique, where three of the four elephants and their families roam. The fourth, Espero, spends most of his time in South Africa.

Females Limpopo and Tembo and their families were found relatively close to each other (within 5km of each other), however the males Espero and Jumbo were further away. Nevertheless it can be seen with the help of the satellite tracking system that Tembo and Jumbo have been spending time together.

Limpopo roamed through the Limpopo National Park over the past few months. Her home range (the area in which she roams) spans a distance of 70km, bordered to the south by the wildlife enclosure, the west by the boundary fence with the Kruger National Park and to the north and east by the Shingwedzi River.
hasn't spent as much time with Limpopo and is now favouring passing the time with Jumbo.
walked to Massingir Dam at the beginning of this year, perhaps for a change of scenery or perhaps a swim! In the past few weeks however, he has returned to spend quality time with Tembo.
Espero is truly a loner. Unlike the other elephants, which tend to meet up on occasion and spend time together, Espero follows his own path. Last year he was often found wandering between Mozambique and South Africa, but the past two months he has roamed up and down the border line, remaining in South Africa. See the Photo Gallery...
