It’s time to address the elephant in the room – quite literally. 

Two African elephants have been caught on camera wandering through the reception of a hotel in Zambia.

The footage was captured by receptionist Robert Zgozi at Mfuwe Lodge next to South Luangwa National Park. 

The pair of mischievous elephants walked through the lobby and past the hotel’s bar area.

However, they appeared nonplussed by their interior surroundings and quickly exited out to the hotel car park, where they began feasting on some leaves. 

South Luangwa National Park is in east Zambia’s Luangwa River valley and is known for its abundant wildlife, including elephants, hippos and birds.
