UGANDA (eTN) – Tourists and Ugandan travelers alike are reportedly now able to greet a lone elephant who has made it a habit to come out of Queen Elizabeth National Park (QENP) and take strolls through Katunguru, a village located at the Kazinga Channel bridge and the turn off into the park’s Mweya Safari Lodge.

Residents at Katunguru reportedly confirmed that the elephant regularly visit’ but has not shown any hostility towards people and property nor behaved in an aggressive fashion. One Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) official in regular contact with this correspondent, under usual condition of anonymity, confirmed: “We are aware of this, and our staff at QENP know that animals at times stray from the main park area, so we try to lure them back into the park. In this case, it is [being] monitored, as the elephant is not violent, otherwise it may have to be properly relocated to avoid damage and claims against UWA.”

It is noteworthy that the Katunguru bridge was brought over after the second World War from the UK, where it had been used during the war years as an alternative bridge across the river Thames. A commemorative plaque reminds visitors to the site of this historic fact. The Kazinga Channel connects lakes Edward and George, both part of Queen Elizabeth National Park.
