In Addo Elephant National Park, situated in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa, Conrad Cramer captured this amazing picture of a young elephant standing his ground against a large, old buffalo bull.


Elephant vs Buffalo


The little ellie got a few bumps from the buffalo (these old guys are known as dagga bulls – grumpy, loners and full of mud), but got away with only a major lesson learnt. Someone commented on this picture – “An elephant never forgets…”. We might see some action in the next few years! Just wait until this little guy grows up…

Addo Elephant National Park is the perfect destination for the start or finish of a Cape Town and Garden Route tour, and works well for families. Find out more about this national park in our Addo Travel Guide.
