At Mfuwe Lodge in South Luangwa National Park in Africa, there are very special guests that roam around the place each year. Showing up between late October and mid-December to feast on the fallen fruits from the large wild mango (Cordyla africana) trees in the area, whole families of elephants have been regular guests at the lodge for a number of years. They just casually pass by the large safari lodge so they can munch on delicious mangoes . Quite startling to see them pass by the front desk!
One particular elephant family of at least three generations has been the focus of many videos, news reports, children’s books, photography series, and TV documentary. They have gained so much attention because they return annually, and they have unique behaviors and unusual dining habits.
