This viral video shows terrifying moments an elephant charged at a safari vehicle in South Africa’s Selati Game Reserve and sent its occupants running for their lives.
The attack came while trainee guides were being driven through the game reserve, which is situated at the edge of Kruger National Park, on Sunday when the bull elephant appeared out of the undergrowth and made straight for their vehicle, reports Daily Mail.
Footage captured by EcoTraining guides reveals how the 13-foot elephant flipped the jeep over. “Get out, get out, get out,” a guide in a safari vehicle behind the jeep being attacked was heard yelling as trainee guides ran away from the aggressive elephant.
The hair-raising footage has gone viral on social media, racking up thousands of views on Twitter and Facebook. Watch it below:
Fortunately, everyone in the safari vehicle managed to escape without injuries.
“Although the vehicle was damaged, thankfully none of the people on the vehicle were injured,” said the General Manager of Selati Game Reserve, Bryan Havemann.
