Andy Hogg is the Managing Director of Mfuwe Lodge in Zambia. He spoke with Southwest News Service (SWNS) about how a bull elephant recently entered the main lobby through the front door and briefly explored the room.

According to Hogg, this isn’t the first time the lodge has faced an elephant snooping around the premises.

“We take care not to leave any fruit or food behind the counter when the elephants enter,” he told SWNS. “During the wild mango season, we have elephants in the yard and at the reception several times a day. This usually happens from late October to mid-December.”

Apparently, elephants are popular with visitors to the lodge.

“Customers love it, as you can imagine, but we take great care to keep them away from the elephants and safe,” Hogg said.

This particular elephant did not cause any problems and left without incident.

“He didn’t stay too long. He was coming back from the yard where he had eaten wild mangoes before returning to the herd,” Hogg said. “I’ve seen this happen a number of times over the years, but that doesn’t make it any less special.”
