This baby elephant in South Africa’s Sabi Sand Game Reserve was keen to stamp his authority on the situation, resulting in an amusing encounter for guests of Captured in Africa Exclusive Safaris.

The stick seen in the video is usually used to brush away early morning spider webs that are often suspended over the bush tracks. The guide used the stick to distract the baby elephant and so prevent contact with the vehicle. This quick thinking prevented injuries and the development of a bad habit with vehicles.
