Johannesburg - A man is believed to have been trampled to death by an elephant in the Mapungubwe National Park and World Heritage Site in Limpopo, SA National Parks said in Monday.

Rangers in the western part of the park found the body of a Zimbabwean man, in his early 40s, on Saturday, spokeswoman Divhani Maremba said in a statement.

“It is believed that he might have been trampled to death by an elephant. A Zimbabwean passport and a cellphone were discovered in his possession.”

It was believed he had been with a group of people because a number of footprints were visible nearby.
