While in Port St Elizabeth we visited Addo Elephant National Park, which is named after the 11 surviving elephants that existed when the park was created in the 1930s.  Now there are over 500 elephants in the park, all descended from those original few.  In the park we saw some animals we hadn't seen before (a jackal and some ostriches) but the main attraction was a herd of about 150 elephants clustered around a water hole.
