What an amazing first Game Drive and First Day, we were hardly out of the camp when we saw the "Orphans" ( a sub group of Elephants ).
They were behaving slightly differently - we soon found out why, upon head -count there was a newborn calf. The mother - Constance - still had the afterbirth trailing behind her.
The little one appeared white with all of hair! When he tried to cross the road he collapsed - walking was obviously very new! All the others rushed around and helped him up.
We were able to watch him for ages - even taking his first sip from Mum!
What a wonderful sighting.
I Can't imagine anything beating this.
