AN ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM: HOTEL WITH A TWIST

These uninvited guests ELEPHANTLY make their annual trip through the reception of this welcoming lodge. Every year, the paying guests at the Mfuwe Lodge, located in Zambia's South Luangwa National Park, make way for the return of this mischievous herd of gatecrashing elephants, hoping to wrap their trunks around some juicy fruit. This amazing experience was photographed by general manager of the lodge Ian Salisbury, 62, after he decided to capture the extraordinary event. 'This is the very unusual, and quite unique phenomenon of an annual elephant trek through the lodge's reception/lobby area,' explains Ian, who is originally from Bacup, Lancashire. 'From late October every year, families of elephants visit the lodge grounds to feed on the fruit of a 'wild mango' (Cordyla africana) tree which grows in the lodge courtyard.
