There is no animal in the world quite like the elephant. These majestic mammals are incredibly intelligent with memories that can span many years, form deep family bonds, and display signs of grief and joy. Their impressive stature and incredible anatomy make them one of the most fascinating creatures on the planet, but to see them in a zoo sometimes isn’t quite enough. On your next romantic getaway to Africa or Asia, be sure to see if you can squeeze an elephant encounter into your itinerary, as it will leave you in awe of these gentle giants.
