"Imphamvu" was orphaned when her mother died from anthrax and was taken in by a family in Chibembe. The family had another elephant called Moto and a zebra called Ebba. The other animals (plus a second zebra) caught anthrax from Imphavu and die. The family made a new camp at Tafika and brought Imphavu with them. After many happy years there she began raiding the local villagers' fields and drinking their beer. They sent her to a game ranch about an hour's drive outside of Lusaka...the Protea Lodge. There were some unsuccessful attempts to release her back into elephant groups in South Luangwa.
baby python and lunch - the kids were playing with some chicks on the grounds which I assumed had something to do with it being the Easter holiday weekend. Apparently they (there are 4 or 5 of these pythons in the pit) eat 5 a day...
Weaver birds (me without my guidebook) and their nests, hanging above the crocs.
