The elephants (Poentja, Good Star, Aali Ajali and Kaka
Mkubwa) in Vwaza Marsh Wildlife reserve located in the Nyika
Peace Park are quite adventurous and cover large distances.
Poentja and Good Star even crossed over to Zambia and roamed
through the Lundazi Forest Reserve. The other two elephants
came close to crossing the border, but remained within the

the central southern section of the park. However during November
last year she left this area and moved to the western boundary
