Sᴏᴜᴛʜ Aғʀɪᴄᴀn Truckers Rescue An Abandoned And Thirsty Three-Week-Old Elephant

While traveling to Nata in Bᴏᴛsᴡᴀɴᴀ, Carlos Santos, Johan Groenewald, and Pieter Roussow discovered the newborn elephant. Approximately 900 kilometers from Johannesburg is the settlement of Nata, which is situated in the northern part of the Central District of Bᴏᴛsᴡᴀɴᴀ.

The truckers from “Afriag Sᴏᴜᴛʜ Aғʀɪᴄᴀ” had to stop some 100 kilometers from their destination since a bridge had been washed away by the torrential rains as they were on their route to deliver merchandise.

When the tiny elephant spotted the trucks, it emerged from the bushes to ask for assistance. The baby elephant was around three weeks old. The truckers approached the infant with caution but soon understood that she really needed care and hydration.


However, an elephant wouldn’t abandon a newborn elephant. The mother and its calf must have been separated from the family herd at the time, and before she could return to the herd, soᴍᴇᴛʜing must have occurred to her.


They gave the baby water and spent some time looking for the herd, but they couldn’t find them anywhere, so they called the ᴄʟᴏsᴇst animal refuge. Following the bridge’s repair, the drivers put their new passenger onto the truck and drove to the Bᴏᴛsᴡᴀɴᴀ Elephant Sanctuary to deliver the precious cargo.
