Elephant smashed tourists to death in ZambiaA Dutch and a Belgian tourist were trampled to death by an elephant in Zambia, while taking the pictures too close to the elephant.

 

 

The holidaymakers, whose identities have not been released, were killed on Saturday while on safari at Maramba River Lodge in the tourist town of Livingstone in Africa.

 

 

 

The police spokesman Danny Mwale said that a lady from Belgium aged 57 and a 64-year-old man from the Netherlands were killed as they went close to the elephant trying to take photographs.

 

 

 

Mwale said the police who visited the prospect found the bodies lying on the ground with multiple injuries.

 

 

The cases of tourists killed by wild animals while on safari are often reported across southern Africa. It is also reported that some of the tourists have been mauled by lions in the wild safari while attempting to take pictures.
