Author's note: For many people today the sight of a great tusker in a conservation area is an experience without equal. What makes it so special is that only a handful of these magnificent animals remain in the wild. Our aim in producing this book was to celebrate and commemorate some of the past and present African great tuskers. As time goes by, further great tuskers will no doubt appear to grace nature reserves with their presence and to give pleasure to tourists and hunters alike.
