Bubi tragically lost her mother to poachers, and had a very solitary upbringing as a result. She needed a lot of tender loving care before she gained any faith and confidence in man.
Bubi is the mother of Zindoga, and is the natural ‘mother’ of the herd – nursing other calves besides her own – and in particular, Mambo.
Bubi has a loving relationship with the female elephants, and her initial label of ‘unresponsive’ has proved to be inaccurate, as she has settled down well within the herd.
