Cutest Baby Elephant First Steps

The baby elephant named Elle, born in the Mala Mala Game Reserve located in South Africa takes her clumsy first steps surrounded by her family members who try to help her in this important stage of her life.

The help that she receives is not the most delicate in the animal world, you can notice the strength of her caregivers while they push her with their legs to keep the little baby balanced.


Safari guide, Brendan Cole, filmed this youngster’s rite of passage and after 30 minutes of failed attempts, the calf was up and allowing the herd to move off, stopping every now and again to allow a short breather for Elle.

Every baby elephant needs to learn to walk quickly or there is a risk becoming a meal for tigers or lions.
