Strut into the weekend like this self-confident ellie...

These few delightful snaps show an elephant roaming through the Mfuwe Lodge, a Bushcamp Company, in the South Luangwa in Zambia, apparently looking for mangos.

WATCH: Elephant playing soccer with a dung ball is all the cute rolled into one 

Photos taken by the General Manager and keen photographer, Ian Salisbury show the ellie 'jumping' over the camp wall with ease. Much like a pro hurdler would. 

Of the incident, the management says "Elephants often come into camp to look for the wild mango trees, especially when they have fruit on them. The library is in the background of these images and this impressive bull wandered through camp to see if there was any fruit left on the trees."

We must say, we are very impressed by his wall scaling abilities, even if the wall is pretty low.
