WATCH: Happy Friday! Let's Take a Mud Bath With Some Adorable Baby Elephants

Paula Froelich

No trip to Kenya is complete without visiting the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, outside of Nairobi, which runs a baby-elephant orphanage. Locals have found the babies in the bush, usually in different stages of starvation, mourning over the bodies of their parents, who have been killed for their tusks. The little ellies are then delivered to the orphanage, where they are fed, cared for, and raised until they can be reintroduced into the wild. Tourists and locals alike crowd into the facility to watch the babies be fed and frolic in the shelter’s mud pit. It’s probably the cutest thing you will see all day, so enjoy!
