Visitors to the Kruger National Park in South Africa made a lucky escape when an elephant, which had been feeding next to the side of the road, suddenly decided to charge them.

Fortunately there were no cars behind them BUT the gravel road was “extremely slippery” as it had been raining, so reversing was a little challenging and pretty scary… “especially with a 5-ton elephant charging at you”, said the driver of the vehicle… ooh can also be heard saying, in total South African style: “Ooh V*k!”

The driver told YouTube user Kruger National Park that after he stopped, his partner carried on filming and then “we both sat in silence as the elephant moved off, knowing how lucky we were to survive this…”
