The elephant is one of Africa’s most iconic animals, which is why Sondor used the elephant as the symbol for its 70th anniversary. In African culture the elephant is said to represent strength, stability, stamina, longevity, loyalty, tenacity and honour. Along with these remarkable attributes, elephants are known for their wisdom, cooperative spirit and most obviously their size.  These are all qualities that Sondor and its staff always strive to epitomise.
