Watch as this adorable baby elephant takes an unfortunate tumble down a steep hill while running with his herd at Biyamiti Camp in the Kruger National Park in South Africa. This national park is one of the largest ones in Africa, and it covers a vast area. All sorts of creatures can be seen there, and it is referred to as International Man and Biosphere Reserve, or simply “The Biosphere".

This clumsy little fella is just getting accustomed to this whole new “walking" thing, and he can't seem to quite handle the steepness of the hill. That results in a hilarious tumble, but luckily for him, his mom and herd are close by, so they instantly pick him up and take care of him. Baby elephants stay very close to their mothers for the first couple of months.

That way they can learn all they need about their surroundings, but sometimes that learning takes some time – like in this particular case. We hope that this little fella won't have any trouble during his next steep hill descend. But if he does, his herd will surely help him get back on his feet. So adorable and endearing, this put a smile on our face!
