It's tough enough catching a tiger by the tail - but how about an elephant?
Tourists are being given the chance to perform a jumbo conservation task by helping capture and move a herd of 70 of the animals to a new home in the wilds of south-eastern Africa.

They will participate in rounding up the tuskers in Malawi's Liwonde National Park and Mangochi district, from where they will be transported to restock the Majete Wildlife Reserve in the south of the country.
The operation is necessary because a surplus of elephants in Mangochi has brought them into conflict with local villagers, whose farmland they are invading.
Tourists will help track the animals, subude them with tranquilliser darts and then load them on to trucks fitted with specially-designed trailers and cages. The whole group then follows the elephants down to Majete to see them naturalised into their new environment.

The six-day eco-holiday, organised by the South African company Exclusive Air Safaris in conjunction with the African Parks Foundation, costs around £4,530 per person - and includes accommodation in en-suite tents.
Malawi tourism spokesman Kelly White said the relocation scheme could be extended to include rhino and buffalo.
'The ultimate goal is to turn the Majete into a viable game and conservation park, where the animals are safe and the population sustainable.'
