Tourist killed by an Elephant

Two Tourists from Belgium and Holland have been killed by an Elephant at a Lodge near Malamba River in the Zambian Tourist capital, Livingstone.

A witness has told Zambian Eye that the bizarre incidence happened Saturday afternoon when a woman from Belgium moved near to the elephant to get closeup photos of the Elephant.

When the man from Holland saw the Elephant charging at the woman he tried to save her but they were both killed.

“The two were trampled at a lodge, the lady was taking pictures of the beast which got agitated and charged towards her, the man when he saw this he thought he could save the Belgian lady and in the process he was also trampled,” narrated the witness.

Caution: The pictures may not be ideal for those sensitive.

  1. These are wild animals and are not tame or in a zoo. An elephant is not a housecat or a lapdog to be stroked! Stay clear!

  3. this is very very sad. as Zambians we should demand for answers from the lodge operators. did they give the tourists instructions on what to do and not to do? where were the guards? safety issues are not taken seriously in our country. no wonder many people go over to the Zim side. the elephant should be killed. condolences to the bereaved families.
