The “naughty” elephant drinking from the swimming pool

This cheeky elephant decided to crash into a tourist getaway by DRINKING from the swimming pool.

The elephant took the most of the gap in the fence at Kanga Camp in Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe and decided to quench his thirst.

The brilliant photos were taken by wildlife writer and photographer Rachel Rebibo, 39, of Paris, France, while visiting Zimbabwe last November.

She said: “I was drinking wine before dinner when this elephant came up from the pan to drink cool water.

“Being near an elephant is an amazing inexperience

“Even though they are used to humans, they are still wild animals, so it is important to be quiet and never try to touch them or feed them.

“The water in the tank is filtered and treated with UV light, so it is completely safe for elephants to drink.

“I feel so bad for the staff in charge of the pool, as he just cleared the mud and refilled the pool from an earlier cheeky elephant visit!”
