Ear you are! Kayakers greeted by bathing elephants when kayaking!
Tourists had a welcome surprise when they were greeted by ELEPHANTS while kayaking.
The holidaymakers were promised a ‘magical’ experience at a private eco camp in Northern Laikipia, Kenya – and the company certainly delivered!
The kayakers were able to get up close and personal with the giant mammals as they played in the water.
At one point, three elephants crowded round a very excited couple, while a baby elephant clung onto its back.
A spokesperson for Ekorian’s Mugie Camp said: “Approaching the herds by kayak and staying upwind, we are able to get up-close and personal, paddling very near to the elephants as they swim and play in the water.
“The elephants belong to several different herds on Mugie – we have bull elephants, mothers and their calves, who all come to swim.
“It’s magical to watch any of them, but especially the calves as they play and splash, wrapping their trunk around their mother’s tail for balance.”
