In Pictures: Elephants on holiday will make you ‘Laugh Out Loud’

Elephants on Holiday

Only in Africa will you see elephants stroll through a lodge. The Bushcamp Company captured funny shots that make it look like the elephants are on holiday.


Elephants are often spotted at the Mfuwe Lodge in the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia. Mfuwe Lodge stands directly en-route to this elephant herd’s favourite food – wild mangoes.

Every year, between late October and mid-December the animals arrive at Mfuwe Lodge in the South Luangwa National Park, Zambia.

The whole family comes to eat the wild mango (Cordyla Africana) fruits which fall from a tree just beyond the open plan lobby.

“There’s great excitement when the elephants walk through, but we try to keep everyone calm, the elephants are usually very relaxed and pay little attention to people, so much so they have been known to fall asleep here!” – Ian Salisbury, Lodge manager 

The Bushcamp Company recently shared photos of the occurrence and the way the pictures were taken, it looks like the elephants were arriving at the lodge for a family holiday. They strolled in, checked out the complimentary tea and coffee and took part in regular family holiday chaos. See the funny images below.
