Is South Africa the next valuable destination for poachers and ivory traders?

Poachers are reported to have recently killed at least 6 tuskers on the Mozambican side of the Park, one of them in the picture below.
Elephant poachers appear to be using sophisticated smuggling routes set up to launder rhino horns from the Kruger via Mozambique to Asian countries.

The global illegal ivory trade has tripled in the past five years, with up to 50,000 elephants killed in 2011 and the proceeds are believed to be funding insurgencies in Central and East Africa, according to the United States department of state.
