An elephant that is believed to have escaped from Nkhotakota Game Reserve has drowned in Lake Malawi, Malawi24 has established.
Information that Malawi24 has gathered indicates that the elephant got stuck in deep waters as it was trying to cross waters in the district.
An earlier version of the story said the animal was killed by people in the district but Malawi24 has established that the elephant failed to move in the water which led to its drowning.
The incident was reported to wildlife authorities in the district who went to the place of the incident in the district.
It is yet to be established if it was one of the elephants that have been relocated from Majete Game Reserve and Liwonde Wildlife Park to Nkhotakota National Park by African Parks.
More than 500 elephants have been relocated from natural reserves where the species have been heavily poached to Nkhotakota National Park.
Conservationists feel that moving elephants from Majete and Liwonde Wildlife Parks to Nkhotakota will help restore elephant populations in Malawi and Africa.
African Parks is a non-profit group based in Johannesburg which manages all the three wildlife reserves.
Plans to rehome the elephants came amid continued decline of elephants in Africa due to massive poaching which happened in order to meet the growing demand for ivory, mostly in parts of Asia.

Why is there blood in the water? And that water is too shallow for an elephant to drown. That’s confusing.

That’s what is called FAKE NEWS and it is a sign that fake news does exist. That’s what most of the politicians do. The supporters will just fight for nothing.

elephants are excellent swimmers and they do float in water, and one thing is that with the trunk an elephant breaths under water, it didnt drown.
what happened then?
Eni njobvu said it drowned.it was too weak.the distance it long
An elephant can swim long distances
But there is always a limit unless there are amphibians
So which is which?eye witness pls tell me

Elephant are good in water. What I can see is blood then that tell us that it was killed.
Mmmmh, can’t believe that. I know elephants do swim.
Impossible to swim through the lake
Khumbo, i saw them with my own naked eyes crossing Shire river within Liwonde National park. Not once but several times.
And even Lake Malombe which is also boundary to Shire river. Which Lake do you think Elephants can’t cross my brother?
Level of water matters most.
In too much mud it can’t cope.
the information has been twisted inorder to avoid arrests if found that it was killed within the community,it carries maximum jail term.elephants are good at swimming.
Elephants swim. If it is stack in the mud, others come for help but pulling it out.That’s what I know but I am sure what’s on the ground!
Achewa nkhwiru yanu imaposa ya fisi apotu mwaimalidza mkuigawana njobvuyo?
kkkkkkkkkk hahahahahahaha nelson you’re so funny
Teach the elephants how to swim before they are relocated to KK game reserve
May be it was trying to relocate itself from Nkhotkota Game Reserve to Chia
