In July and August of 2016, Prince Harry spent three weeks in Malawi working with a team of wildlife translation specialists hired by African Parks. (In 2017, Harry was named president of African Parks.)

The royal often travels to Africa, but wanted to clarify that it's not just to relax. "I don't go on safari," Harry told her T&C. "I come so I can surround myself with people [working in conservation] and support them. "

The prince said he didn't mind roughing it up with the team. "Ten years in the army taught me about sleeping rough," he told T&C. "Although, of course, this is total luxury in comparison."

Kensington Palace released a group of photos from the royal's summer 2016 trip, alongside Harry's own commentary. "This big bull (male) elephant refused to lie down after it had been darted with a tranquilizer," the prince said of this photo. "After about seven minutes the drug began to take effect and the elephant became semi-conscious, but it continued to shuffle for awhile! slow him down! "

Prince Harry explains in a quote that after the animals are released, the spray paint helps the crew keep the elephant families together, as it makes them easily identifiable. (The paint itself wears off after a few days.)

This photo shows "A few of us are trying to 'tip an elephant,'" Harry explained in a statement. "This young man was struggling with sedative drugs and heading towards the trees, which would have made it very difficult for us to get him on the truck."

Prince Harry's grandmother, meanwhile, had a much more traditional royal visit to Malawi back in 1979. Here, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip attended a reception alongside their current president, Hastings Banda.
