SOUTH LUANGWA NATIONAL PARK, Zambia, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- The operator of a lodge in Zambia shared video of a herd of elephants making their near-daily trek through the lodge to reach a tree covered in delicious mangoes.

The Bushcamp Company, which posted the video to YouTube, said the elephants have been making daily treks through the Mfuwe Lodge to feed from the mango tree.

The Bushcamp Company said the elephants visit the lodge between October and December, sometimes multiple times in one day.

The company said the elephants first started making the trip in the 1970s, when they were led to the tree by an elephant dubbed Wonky Tusk.
