An encounter with African elephants

This VR video will take your breath away. At first, you will find yourself in the middle of a vast empty plain. But look around and you will see a herd of African elephants approaching fast. Everywhere you look, you are surrounded by these gigantic and curious animals that have come to take a closer look at this unfamiliar visitor (the VR camera). Except for the rumbling of the elephants, this video is delightfully quiet and it’s easy to imagine yourself on the plains of Africa.
