New born on Kapama

This morning we went out on a relaxed game drive. We saw many plains game, roaming around and interacting with one another. We went to the river where there are some hippo and lots of birds to see. We stopped there for a few minutes just to enjoy the view when we then heard the elephants a few hundred meters away from us. We decided to try finding them and to our astonishment, there was a new born baby elephant! He was still quite weak while he was walking, falling over his own two feet. The mother pushed the baby forward with her trunk to help him find the way. This was a very special moment as well an incredible sighting.
