WASHINGTON, DC. - On Tuesday, the National Zoo’s Asian elephant Kandula departed for his new home at the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden, the zoo said on its Web site and Facebook page.

A team of keepers and veterinarians are traveling with Kandula, the zoo noted. En route, they will observe him via live video monitors and will stop frequently to care for his needs. The zoo said they will let elephant fans know when Kandula has safely arrived.
