About Sebakwe


The dominant Bull in the Jabulani herd, Sebakwe, is a true gentle giant in every sense.

Named after a river in Zimbabwe, Sebakwe was born around 1985 and was part of the original herd that was rescued in 2002.

He is by far the biggest, tallest and widest (both from the front and from the rear) elephant in the herd. His tusks are beautifully developed but in 2018, he broke his left tusk making it considerably shorter than his right tusk.

While being a grand and striking bull, he is also tender and loving, and very protective of the herd. He has a strong presence and a well-tempered personality – qualities that led to him being featured in various Amarula campaigns over recent years.

His favourite time of the day is when the elephants take time out from foraging to swim in one of the dams and he especially loves splashing about with a tree branch in his mouth or trunk, showcasing his impressive strength to his fellow herd.

Sebakwe loves to spend as much time as possible with Setombe, the oldest of the females.
