A young bull was so thrilled to play and cool off in the hot heat that he completely covered himself from head to toe. Since he was having so much fun and rolling around so much, only the wʜɪᴛes of his eyes could be seen peeking out of the goo. The bull continued to enjoy himself at the Kumana Dam in the Kruger National Park in Sᴏᴜᴛʜ Aғʀɪᴄᴀ as a group of puzzled impala watched.
The images were taken by Sydney, Aᴜsᴛʀᴀʟɪᴀ native and founder of the safari business, Cara Pring. According to 32-year-old Cara, numerous elephants, impala, giraffes, and baboons visited the dam to drink as a result of the severe drought.
Because he was having so much fun playing in the muck, this young elephant didn’t seem to worry that there wasn’t much water left. He was resting on his side, all covered in muck, as some impala observed from the edge of the pond. Before finally attempting to stand up and departing with a companion, he amused them for a while.
His picture lying down in the mud with an impala glancing off in the distance was her favorite, according to Cara. He was so fully buried in mud that he looked as though he were in heaven. She found it amusing because she rarely saw elephants covered in mud dozing off. He almost appeared to be receiving a private treatment at an African spa.
Cara co-founded Ready Set Safari with her husband, which provides individualized tours around southern Africa. She claims to have already been to every spot she plans to take safaris to and spends a lot of time traveling throughout Africa. They attempt to travel to Kruger National Park every year since, according to Cara, it is their favorite place on earth.
