Our Favorite Elephant Moments
By Britta Foulis – Content Marketing Manager
They may be the largest animals on land, but elephants are able to easily creep into our hearts no matter how big they may be!
On the 12th of August 2018, World Elephant Day was celebrated across the world. People shared their reasons for why this incredibly precious animal is so important to them as well as highlighting the need to protect the elephant species.
We have had so many special moments that have been shared with guests and the elephants in the areas we call home. So much so, that thisWorld Elephant Daywe have decided to share our favourite videos that were taken by our guests or guides whilst out in the bush.

The Bravest Little Ellie
A young calf has a go at scaring off our safari vehicle but it seems as though he may have taken on more than he can handle! This was taken at Roho ya Selous.
A Quick Visit To Oliver’s
Maybe he took a wrong turn? Or maybe he just wanted to see what we were having for sundowners – who knows! It was great having this little guy pop in and say “Hi!” at Oliver’s Camp.
