The elephants in Mozambique have, in the past been hunted and chased out of their habitat. Their homes have been destroyed in the long history of war.

This unusual site happened at Nuarro Luxury Eco lodge this week is a great indication of how far Mozambique has progressed after the devastation of war.

The wildlife is returning to and re-establishing itself in Mozambique. The staff and guests were amazed to see that an elephant (possibly a single bull elephant) had taken to the sea for a swim. I have often seen lions, rhino and other wildlife on the beaches of Africa but never an elephant. The elephant was content and relaxed, happy to be watched and enjoying a bath in the sea!
