Elephants Saving Baby Elephant from Drowning

Mama and Auntie have to team up to save baby elephant from drowning. Incredible footage by Kicheche Laikipia guest Sandy Gelderman filmed on one of her safari's in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. Kicheche Silver guide Onesmus Lesiata, spotted the herd approaching the rain-swollen Ewaso Nyiro river. With the river deep, mountain high banks are never easy for adults, let alone a six month old calf, so being washed away in the current was a very real possibility. Thankfully mum and her emergency swat team enacted a remarkable rescue. And probably this little calf will remember this advanced swimming lesson for the rest of its life, as will Sandy.
