Visitors in the Mfuwe Lodge in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park might be delighted by the surreal sight of a small herd of elephants trooping through the hotel’s lobby. These wild elephants can be seen strolling through the lobby like they own the place, as they cut through the hotel in order to get to their favorite snack, mangoes.

This video was captured by receptionist Robert Zgozi showing elephants walking through a hotel reception. Walking through the bar area, and out into the car park, a pair of elephants boldly walks through the building. Bypassing the odd looks from the hotel workers, these two elephants are making the reception at Mfuwe Lodge very much their home. Robert’s first thought when the elephants came in was to ensure the safety of our guests, and then once that was in place, he started filming.

Built in 1998, the Mfuwe Lodge is located on one elephant herd’s preferred path to some of the reserve’s mango trees. This architectural accident is now one of the safari lodge’s main draws. This is the only place in the world where elephants freely get so close to humans and the experience is truly amazing.

These tame elephants have embraced nonchalant behavior during their periodic visits, especially when compared to some of the lodge’s paying guests.Visitors usually show great excitement when the elephants walk through, but the elephants are usually very relaxed and pay little attention to people. Talk about the elephant in the room!
