A cute baby rhino captured the hearts of tourists on safari at Kruger National Park in South Africa recently when it ran toward the safari vehicle and away from its mother, who was pretty nonchalant about the encounter.
Latestsightings.com described it as “a heart-melting moment, and was almost like watching a new puppy find its feet.”
Darren Sheer, on safari with his family, captured the adorable moment in video shared with Kruger Sightings.
Sheer described the encounter to Latestsightings.com:
“While on a game drive the ranger saw a mom and baby rhino in the distance. The ranger stopped the safari vehicle on the gravel road quite a distance from the two rhino and waited for the rhinos to come closer.
“The mom and baby were slowly walking down the gravel road, when all of a sudden the baby rhino got super excited and started running up and down – coming quite close to the safari vehicle and then running back to its mom.
