Elephant Calf River Rescue

Filmed in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. The Herd was spotted 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 mom and her emergency swat team enacted a remarkable rescue.

The Ol Pejeta Conservancy is a 90,000-acre not-for-profit wildlife conservancy in the Laikipia district of central Kenya.
