ELEPHANTS are hoisted up in the air as part of a mammoth rehoming project.
Some hung upside down as they were lowered in after a 217-mile road trip.
“We are overjoyed that the exercise has been completed successfully” said Brighton Kumchedwa, Malawi’s Director of National Parks and Wildlife.
“The addition of elephants and other wildlife species to Kasungu National Park will benefit Malawi tourism as well as communities through job creation, thereby fuelling a conservation-driven economy.”
Sam Kamoto, African Parks’ Country Manager, bygevoeg: “We have been working in close partnership with the DNPW in Liwonde to generate benefits for people and wildlife since 2015.
“Thanks to the Malawian Government’s commitment to this landscape, Liwonde has re-emerged as a park not only hailed for the recovery of its wildlife numbers, but for its international tourism appeal.
“The addition of elephants to Kasungu will help with the overall tourism in the country.”
