Huge wild elephant charges safari tourists in South Africa

Visitors to Kruger National Park in South Africa got a scare recently when a wild elephant suddenly charged their vehicle.

The filmer and his partner had stopped their car on Friday morning to watch the elephant browsing on a tree when without warning it suddenly ran towards them.

The filmer quickly put the car into reverse and sped away as best he could on a wet, slippery gravel road.

Fortunately, the elephant halted its charge and the pair escaped unharmed.

"We both sat in silence as the Elephant moved off, knowing how lucky we were to survive this," the filmer said.
