South Africa: On Safari and Baby Elephants

South Africa: On Safari and Baby Elephants

What could be more cute than baby animals, right?

My last trip to South Africa couldn’t have been timed more perfectly during “baby season”.

They were everywhere– baby elephants, giraffes, monkeys, zebra, impalas and kudu; every species I came across had a baby in tow.

Today, I thought I’d share this image of a little guy who decided he’d turn and defend his family against our safari truck, or maybe he was just as curious as I was with him.

My guide, Nicki Silberbauer thought this little elephant might only be a month or so old, his brother in front of him, quite possibly a few months older.

I snapped away in awe as they moved away from us and into the bush.

Hope you like the image as much as I do.
