Elephants are wise and thoughtful creatures with long memories. They travel in small herds, keeping each other close to protect the group. They listen to nature’s omens and tell the stories of their ancestors, representing the voice of spirituality in the story of Quench.

Springbok are quick, excitable and easily spooked. Springbok are the voice of youth in the story of Quench, always charging headlong into danger and learning quickly from their mistakes.
