This is what game ranger Kevan Dobbie did when an elephant climbed onto the roof of the Earth Lodge in the Sabi Sabi nature reserve to nibble on some leaves. The elephant seems unbothered by Dobbie with his camera, or the fact that it was walking on the roof while it was peacefully eating the leaves off a tree.

Watch the videos:

According to the resort's Facebook page, the roof is built at a certain height to organically form part of the hills of the environment. Elephants and other game regularly visit the lodge's watering hole. Smaller game can also be seen on the roof from time to time.
