Elephant Story by David Chancellor

Muvhimiwe Nzou (Elephant Hunter)

Chitsa ‘Campfire’ area, adjacent to The Gonarezhou National Park, Zimbabwe..

Local villagers fall upon the body of a dead elephant reducing the huge carcass to bones in under 2 hours.

24 hours later the bones have also gone, all that’s visible are the fresh tracks of elephants in the damp ground where the carcass once lay.

In 1989, Campfire was founded to improve relationships between rural Zimbabweans and their environment to create sustainability. Campfire provides incentives to Zimbabweans to preserve wild animals and utilize them as valuable natural resources, in many instances Campfire has changed the relationship between Zimbabweans and their environment.
