Fitness in the wild can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and on a regular day – you can be pleasantly surprised when you see the animals in the middle of their routines! Maybe this elephant will be compared to Lionel Messi or Christiano Ronaldo one day! watch the video from Kruger Sightings.
When Dylan Royal, a guide at &Beyond Kirkman’s Kamp and Tengile River Lodge went out or his first morning drive on the 30th of September with a group of tourists he was guiding, he never expected to be surprised by an elephant calf warming up with an early morning soccer session. LatestSightings.com asked Dylan how he came across this incredible moment, and his story was as enjoyable as the footage.
“We just left &Beyond Tengile in the Sabi sands driving through an area looking for a leopard we heard of from the lodge when we came across a spread-out herd of elephants with quite a few young ones present.
