This baby Elephant playing in the water might be the cutest thing you will see today!


Kruger National Park, South Africa – The African Elephant is undoubtedly one of Africa’s most iconic species known for intense emotional awareness, uncanny intelligence and very strong family ties and thus we as humans can find many similarities with these gentle giants. But much like humans, they need some time to outgrow the awkwardness (and playfulness) of youth.

Although it only takes newborn elephants a few hours to kind of master standing and walking — vital skills for nursing — they need much more time to figure out how to use their trunks and keeping their playfulness down when they see water.

An exceptionally adorable video of a baby elephant was filmed in the Kruger National Park by Yvette Hes and has been crowned as one of the top ‘2018 Best Video Clips’ by Africa Geographic… and we can all see why!
