... Letaba campsite just before the 6pm gate closing and although exhausted, went and had a look at the great tuskers of Kruger museum which had the tusks of 8 enormous bull elephants that had lived and died in the park. They also had a full skeleton of an elephant as well as a heart. It was upsetting to see the hip bone of 1 of the elephants with bullet marks from where poachers had shot it.
