This is the adorable moment a man helped a baby elephant find its way back to its mother after getting lost in his backyard.
Dawie Maree, manager at The Wildlife Camp in Zambia, helped the calf off the porch and back to its mother, resting in a nearby river.
In the touching video filmed last month, Dawie can be seen removing some of the chairs the baby was stuck behind before pushing the mammal out of his backyard.
At the end of the video, the mother can be seen in the distance running to get her baby back.
Dawie said: ‘The calf got lost on the veranda and got stuck between the table and the wall.
“I waited for the mother to go to the river before I ran in to help.
“I was very careful to stay away from the mother; we had a good view of her in the river, luckily I was able to free the calf when it was running back.”
