Lovely elephant caused a big splash when he took a tumble in the river

This adorable baby elephant big splash when he took a tumble in the river.

The two baby elephants begin with a play fight, but one of the baby elephants decides to take a dip when things get tough.

The baby elephant leaped forward happily into the stream, but just a few steps, it seemed to veer off course and disappear beneath the surface with a splash.

Elize Malan, 59, filmed the scene with her husband as they watched the baby elephant play.

The video was shot in Kruger National Park – where Eliza was working as a Tourism Manager of a travel agency.

She said: “Two baby elephants were drinking water when they started fighting. I decided it was boiling and had to take a bath to cool off.

“He ran and fell into the water. The other one followed him, and the play was continued.

“I’ve never seen anything like this before – not the way he got into the water.

“I laughed at myself and posted it on my Facebook and people loved it.”
