More then thirty years ago seven impressive elephant bulls (Big Tuskers) with tusks weighing more than 50 kg each, could be found in Kruger National Park.
Dr U de V Pienaar, the chief warden at the time, decided to publicise these Big Tuskers as a successful example of Kruger's conservation work.
He named those bulls that had not already been identified and also introduced the collective name, the Magnificent Seven.
Their legends live on and most of their impressive ivory can be seen at the Elephant Hall Museum at Letaba Restcamp in the Kruger National Park.
