A battle for territory! 'Angry' elephants warn tourists' vehicles to stay off road in South Africa

A group of tourists had a scary encounter with two young elephants during a safari trip in South Africa.

Footage captured from the inside of the tourists’ car shows a herd of elephants crossing a road and bringing the traffic to halt.

The car continues to move along the road passing by a pair of young elephants.

One of the elephants attempts to charge the vehicle but retreats when the driver revs the engine. A second elephant follows his fellow and touches the vehicle with its trunk before walking away.

The encounter happened on June 1 in Krueger National Park.
