Guests staying at Pondoro had a very special sighting on the 8th of November 2010 when they saw a newborn elephant calf. He was walking around on wobbly knees surrounded by the rest of the group. Everyone ( including the elephants ) was totally engrossed in the scene that no one realized that the baby was walking straight towards the car until it was too late. The guide kept his cool and instructed everyone to keep quiet in order not to make the mother nervous. This worked and they soon went off into the bush leaving guests with an unbelievable tale to tell.
