Watch how these elephants react to an unusual misty morning (Video)

It’s tomorrow at a wildlife reserve in South Africa. Elephants roam and the fog is thick. The fog is so thick that you can barely see what’s in front of you. This is something that worries the elephant herd in the reserve.

It prevents them from continuing their morning walk. The oldest elephant in the pack George marches ahead of the others. It will look for threats that could be hidden in the fog.

The youngest elephants remain in place. While the younger elephants wait for the elderly to return, they approach the shelter. Too close. One of the youngest elephants gently pushes another one away to get too deep into personal space.

You can see how affectionate some of the smaller elephants can be when they’re close to the larger elephants. Elephants show their uncertain nature by the way they move their feet. Your feet get up and move, but don’t take them anywhere.

They proceed with care. George gives the go-ahead to let his flock know that the fog is safe. The herd walks carefully into the fog and still feels some discomfort so it can contain the morning fog.

The oldest elephant Fishan watches over the younger elephants in the background. Fishan takes care of the other elephants together with the matriarch Tokwe. Tokwe could be seen as a viewpoint for strolling with the flock.

Take several paths through fallen trees. It allows you to keep a closer eye on the herd and the world around it. Tokwe also shows his loyalty to Fishan, who can’t walk as well with an injured leg. Tokwe often sits and walks at the same pace as Fishan.

Each of these imposing elephants has a purpose for its herd. Everyone works together, whether they’re looking for danger or staying behind to care for children. It’s a beautiful example of teamwork in nature.
