Elephant carefully climmbs 5 ft wall in attempt to steal mangoes from a nearby lodge

A young man from Lancashire captured the “wonderful” moment of an especially agile elephant climbing a five-foot wall in an attempt to sᴛᴇᴀʟ mangoes from his safari accommodation.

The adult male unexpectedly dropped by on Saturday as the visitors of Mfuwe Lodge in South Luangwa National Park, Zᴀᴍʙɪᴀ, were about to leave for their afternoon safari drive.

Ian Salisbury, 68, the general manager, noticed the bull elephant planning how to lift its four enormous legs over the stone wall without falling.

And Andy Hogg, managing director of The Bushcamp Company, which owns the lodge, recorded the enormous creature’s fruit search as it wandered into camp.

However, this unplanned trip was too late because it was looking for mangoes that were out of season. A family of elephants usually visits the location in southern Africa between October and mid-December.

The thought of an elephant climbing elicited a lot of excitement from the visitors. They were taken aback by how challenging climbing over such a tall wall would be. The elephant was a rather large bull, so it was impressive that he could coordinate all four of his legs to climb the wall.
