Need to get into the freewheeling weekend spirit? Well, let this baby elephant give you a hand. In one of the sweetest videos we’ve ever seen (well, today), a baby elephant is trying to play with some birds, although they aren’t all that interested in hanging around.

The video was shared on Youtube by Kruger Sightings, a channel and website that shares some of the coolest wildlife moments from South Africa’s Kruger National Park. It’s one of the largest game reserves on the entire continent, and home to all kinds of incredible creatures.

Under the video, they wrote: “With this week being so sad after the loss of a great animal, Cecil the lion, we thought we would cheer everyone up with a video that will make you cry of happiness.” Aw, we needed that.

Check out the playful little guy below, and for more awesome animal sightings, check out Kruger Sightings.
