Elephants make themselves right at home

A herd of elephants in Zambia have become a hit with tourists staying at the Mfuwe lodge by making themselves right at home and strolling casually throught the hotel lobby. The reasoning behind this unusual behaviour is said to be the elephants love for the mango grove that is located right next door. The elephants have visited the grove for years at a certain time of the year when the fruit ripens.

Checking in perhaps?
The hotel was built by accident right on their migration trail and to the hotel owners suprise it didnt stop the elephants from folloing their usual path. The animals are said to come in two by two and are always headed by matriarch Wony Tusk. They stroll through each year in late november on route to their annual mango feast providing a chance for amazing interaction between humans and wild animals.
