Letaba Elephant Hall MuseumThe Letaba Elephant Hall Museum of the Kruger National Park in Limpopo Province, South Africa has been re-opened for tourists from Monday by SANParks and an Australian university, the Sunshine Coast.

 

The hall will house the huge tasks of seven big elephants that once existed in the park in the 1970s.

 

The park’s spokesperson William Mabasa says the museum has some significant elements which attracts both local and international tourists.

 

Mabasa said, “Because it is housing the tusks of the seven elephants that were dubbed the magnification seven in the 70s and 80s these were the biggest takers that the Kruger had. Now when they died the tusks were collected. This museum was built and all the tusks are kept there.”

 

“We are working with a university from Austria and our rangers and that process has come to an end and we are -re-opening that museum,” he added.
