Elephant Asserts Dominance: Giraffes Driven Away from Watering Hole in Territorial Display

A group of giraffes in Botswana were chased away from their watering hole by an irritated elephant calf.

The giraffes were hoping to cool off in the water, but were surprised by the charging elephant calf that rushed up behind them.

Janet Kleyn, a wildlife photographer, captured the intense moment at the Mashatu Game Reserve.

According to Kleyn, elephants usually don’t appreciate other animals invading their space at a watering hole and will often chase them away. This young elephant started trumpeting and running towards the giraffes as soon as it saw them at the water.

While young elephants may enjoy this activity, it’s usually not serious. However, there can be instances where an animal gets injured. Fortunately, in this case, the giraffes simply ran off.

Kleyn’s photographs show the giraffes trying to cool off in the water before being spooked by the stampeding elephant calf who rushed up behind them.


The tower of giraffes quickly dispersed after noticing the onrushing elephant who charged at the animals.

The dramatic scenes were captured by Kleyn at the Mashatu Game Reserve.

The elephant calf approached the giraffes from the bushes and quickly rushed toward them while they were cooling off.

Elephants tend not to be fond of other animals sharing their space at a water hole and will often chase them away.
