Namibia translocated six elephants to a tourism game park in Kinshasa, capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, according to Namibia's Port Authorities (Namport).

Namport in a statement revealed this is the first time a consignment of such magnitude involving adult elephants leaving the country and will definitely not be the last as this was a trial run to guarantee that future exportations are conducted smoothly.

The entire operation was done via the port of Walvis Bay and lasted over 20 hours and required approximately 50 personnel members from various stakeholders, the statement added. Late last year, a consignment of 205 animals was also transported from Walvis Bay to the same tourism game park in Kinshasa.

Wildlife Vets Namibia's Ulf Tubbesing said that the animals which were released into strictly non-hunting reserves, are faring very well and have reproduced significantly, as reported by Xinhua.

Meanwhile, Namibia intends to ship another consignment of elephants to DRC in the coming month of June, Namport added.
