Incredible pictures show a pair of adorable young elephants playing together in a watering hole in South Africa

One of the youngsters was intent on getting in the water and is pictured after sliding backwards into the pool - with only his head and front legs visible from the shoreline. 

His companion rushes over to join in the fun and the pair roll about in the mud before being joined by the rest of the herd. 

Photographer Charmaine Joubert, who captured the fun pair in the Addo Elephant National Park in South Africa, said: 'The young elephants are always entertaining at a waterhole, especially on hot days.'
