Mbombela, The Mpumalanga Tourism and Parks Agency (MTPA) was today alerted of eleven elephants roaming around Madadeni in the Nkomazi region. It is believed that the elephants are from Mozambique and they made their way to the Kingdom of Eswatini and eventually to Mpumalanga.
Since they made their way to Mpumalanga, a number of people have been following their journey and there has been an appeal to ensure their safe passage back to Mozambique.
The team of wildlife experts from the MTPA has been working tirelessly to ensure that these elephants are not a threat to human life and are taken back in a safe manner without endangering the lives of those around the surrounding communities.
We would like to appeal to the members of the communities not to resort to violence and provoke these elephants in any way as this could result in the elephants endangering their lives. We appeal for the communities to work with our team of experts as we continue to monitor the situation on the ground and ensure the elephant’s safe return.
