WOW! Although nerve wrecking it is amazing to see that small elephant stumble around your vehicle! Definitely a special moment when wildlife act naturally and approach you!
As humans, we are innately drawn to new life in many different ways shapes and forms. Towards some species more so than others. After getting a radio call from Ranger Ross, informing me of a tiny elephant calf, we head straight there and get far more than we anticipated.
Getting up close and personal with animals is not the goal of the game drive. We set out on each drive with the ambition of viewing every animal in every sighting in its own natural environment, with as little impact as possible.
However, sometimes we get a little close, but there are a few things at play that we take into account. Most important is whether the animal has chosen to approach us, which means it is completely on the animal’s terms, and whether the animal is still relaxed.
Hold on to your seats as we enjoy one of the best elephant sightings of my entire life.

It was such a special moment and to be that close for that long was so awesome.
