The imposing mammals appeared oblivious to the giant dust formation as photographer, Vishva Jayesh Patel, snapped away and caught the extraordinary moment on camera.

The 25-year-old was visiting Amboseli National Park in Kenya when he spotted the meteorological phenomenon.

He said: “This particular sandstorm was very heavy because we had to stop our car for while due to heavy wind.

“I found a herd of elephants just enjoying themselves and playing around.

“They didn’t seem bothered by the storm at all.”
