Turn up sound if you want to hear the music.
The U.S. Car Manufacturers make zillions of boring car commercials,
and most of us have to mute the hyped sound. The Russkies make one
commercial per maker a year, 3 minutes long, and this is one.

This is quite amazing and really quite a privilege to see such a rare thing!
Why go on a safari when you can watch wildlife right from the comfort of your hotel?
Inviting big, exotic animals inside probably wasn’t the plan when the Mfuwe Lodge was built in Zambia in 1998, but that’s what wound up happening. The lodge surrounds a mango tree that a local group of elephants likes to feed on and sits on the path they traditionally used to get to it.
When Mfuwe opened for business, the elephants made it clear they had no intention of changing their route. They walked in like they owned the place, shuffled through the lobby and out into the courtyard to feast on mangoes.
The spectacle, no doubt concerning to whoever was working the reception desk the first time it happened, has become one of the lodge’s main draws, and attracts crowds of tourists every year. According to the lodge, the group that makes the annual stroll through the lobby includes three generations of one elephant family, including their matriarch “Wonky Tusk” and the young “Lord Wellington,” who was born on the lodge grounds in 2009.
Wildlife cameraman Nathan Pilcher recently (2014) went to Mfuwe to see the elephants for himself, and you can watch his short movie by clicking the following link! — December 14, 2015
