A heart warming story of a baby elephant that didn’t give up and the family that didn’t give up on it.
It was the first day of my safari adventure at Etosha National Park and we were lucky to chance upon this Nat Geo -like encounter. Baby elephant was absolutely stuck and spent in the mud. It was amazing to watch how the other elephants interacted in this episode. The helpless young mother was obviously frantic and frustrated, stomping about and roaring. Other members of the herd were rallying the pair. And when the baby finally broke free from the mud, and reunited with its mother, the happiness of the mother was very much palpable - ears were flapping so vigorously, tail was swinging so joyfully, and to cuddle the little one with her trunk, oh there’s nothing more an elephant mother can ask for.
