Elephants Visit Luxury Resort
by KindMeal.my, 18 June 2015
Elephants don't DO detours...

They say that elephants never forget, and that appears to be true. Many years ago in Zambia a group of developers decided to build a luxury resort on the edge of a mango grove in South Luangwa National Park. Little did they know at the time that the mangoes were a favorite of one particular elephant family who visited the area every year when the fruit was ripe for the picking. The following November the staff and guests at the Mfuwe Lodge were startled when the elephants showed up — unannounced, of course — and walked straight through the lobby to reach their beloved grove of mango trees.

Apparently, elephants don’t do detours, and the hotel was built directly in the path of the route to one of their favourite foods, so they just marched on through. Interestingly enough, this is the only herd that does come through, and they come and go as they please. The mango season lasts a mere four to six weeks, so if your curiosity is piqued and you want to experience the elephants’ yearly mango pilgrimage, late November through December is when you’ll need to arrive. The elephants get reasonably close to the staff, who are used to them by now, but guests are asked to keep a respectful distance for obvious safety reasons.

Mfuwe Lodge is a marvellous example of learning to live with indigenous animals, rather than eliminating them. Another great way to inhabit the planet peacefully is to stop eating other species – and that's where KindMeal.my can help. We offer irresistible promotions on irresistible meat-free meals. And how about a mango shake to go with them?
