"We were afraid for him as he was all alone and vulnerable in prolific lion and cheetah territory and our aim was to help him back to the safety of his herd. At the same time, we felt excited because we knew how rare this sighting was, we had only ever heard of things like this on TV."

The couple states they followed the calf and the blue car for about 2kms when the calf decided to follow another car that was passing in the opposite direction.
And at times it's a close call for the little guy as he appears highly confused and runs in the direction of the other car and almost gets run over.
'Little guy went flying into the car
Ali says, "Luckily the ABS on the Toyota was better than that on the little calf. He went flying into the car but luckily was not injured. Then the calf decided to turn towards our vehicle. It was going to the tyres trying to suckle. Looking for a spot on the vehicle to suckle.
"My wife, Asma, rolled down the window and this little guy was obviously quite distressed. We moved the vehicle forward hoping it would start following us. We moved quite a distance away from the calf so he didn't get hurt by the car's tyres. We drove for about another 4-5km like this in search of a herd of wildebeest. The whole way he was crying out for us to stop, at the same time we saw him run through a puddle of water, which was sweet."
