“He was a stranger to us. He wanted to investigate. He wanted to get into the central area where this big mango tree grows,” Ian said.

“He was obviously quite hungry and expected to get some wild mangoes for himself, though there aren’t any left now. That’s all done with for the year,” he added.

“It was impressive he could coordinate his four legs to get over the wall because the elephant was quite a major bull, maybe around 30, so middle-aged.”

Ian said: “Elephants tend to wander around quite big distances and depending on the availability of food, they’ll turn up in certain areas.”

Ian continued: “It has been quite dry then over the last week or. So, we had huge amounts of rain that almost caused a flood. Whether that encouraged him to have a look around, I’m not sure.”
