The visitors to the Mfuwe Lodge in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park have seen something amazing and humorous. To take some mangoes from the safari resort, an adult elephant carefully scaled a 5 foot wall. The giant’s arrival hasn’t gone unnoticed despite its impressive actions.

He simply took the shortest path and settled in immediately, according to Ian Salisbury, general manager of Mfuwe Lodge, who spoke to DailyMail. He was a stranger to us. He wanted to investigate. He wanted to get into the center region where this large mango tree grows. “The guests were really amused with the thought of a climbing elephant. They were in awe that it would bother to climb over such a high wall.”
Elephants frequently visit the trees near the safari resort in quest of mangoes, although they typically find another route. It goes without saying that the mango season runs from October through December. So the surprise guest arrived a little late. Image sources: Ian Salisbury/Kennedy News
The elephant’s entrance into the park amused all of the visitors. He arrived, stretched out, looked about, and ate some grass before turning around oddly and returning the same way, which Ian found hilarious. “He decided to scale this tall wall because it was the quickest route there. The behavior of an elephant climbing so high is really unusual.” Image sources: Ian Salisbury/Kennedy News
We can all enjoy seeing the playful elephant since Andy Hogg, managing director of The Bushcamp Company, which owns the resort, somehow managed to capture the amusing moment on camera!
