In this second part you can see another water buffalo standing on the left. The mother is on the right side of the video. The baby was having some difficulty and was getting worn out so this other one came over to help encourage it. :)

We were on a safari type ride at Lake Nakuru in Kenya, Africa when we turned the corner and saw some other vehicles stopped on the side of the dirt path. To our surprise it was a water buffalo calf that had JUST been born.

The mother still had afterbirth hanging off her and the little baby hadn't even gotten up yet. I didn't get the moment when it first stood up, but this video was taken a couple minutes after that and a couple seconds after Part 1. Watching it learn to walk and take its wobbly steps is so cuuuutttttteeee!!! :D

The baby was having a hard time so instead of helping it the mother would actually keep walking away. This encouraged it to get back up again because, of course, it wants to be closer to its mom.

Plus there was a jackel nearby that was obviously interested in the calf as well as a troop of baboons that kept coming closer and closer. Whether the latter would have done any harm to the baby is unclear, but the mother was nervous all the same.

Eventually we had to leave but I'm so happy that we have this video to watch and remember!
