Watch: Elephant charges safari vehicle in frightening video
Watch the terrifiying moment a safari game vehicle gets stormed by an angry elephant bull.
It was a close call for wildlife guide students taking a safari tour on Sunday, after their car was charged by an aggrivated elephant.
In the now-gone-viral video, two elephants can be seen wandering toward the vehicle when a third comes charging from the left.
The male elephant was in musth and is seen using its tusks to shift the vehicle off the path.
EcoTraining, the company who hosted the thrilling safari at Selati Game Reserve in South Africa confirmed the incident in a statement.
A second video, filmed by an onlooker in the vehicle behind, shows passengers scrambling from the first car while someone can be heard yelling, 'Get out! Get out! Get out! Get out of the car now!'.
It then appears as though the angry elephant retreated shortly after attacking the vehicle.
Let this be a reminder to never mess with these giants, gentle as they appear from a distance.
