Elephant march: Through a hotel lobby

Mail Online

This amazing picture shows why you shouldn’t get between an African elephant and its favourite food.

Mfuwe Lodge in Zambia happens to have been built next to a mango tree that one family of pachyderms have always visited when the fruit ripens. When they returned one year and found the luxury accommodation in the way, they simply walked through reception.

The animals came in two-by-two: Hotel staff and visitors have got used to the elephants’ impromptu strolls through reception

Now the family group, headed by matriarch Wonky Tusk, return every November to gorge on mangos – up to four times a day..

  1. One day there will be an accident with someone getting hurt or killed by these elephants, the elephant will probably be destroyed as a result. An electric fence should be put up to prevent any accidents.
