One of the scariest elephant charges in Africa ever is going viral on social media at the moment. Watch below.
The video was uploaded by Kuiseb Delta Adventures, which offers quad bike and 4×4 tours in Namibia… but it’s not sure who actually filmed the video or where.
What is certain is that is was pretty heart-stoppingly terrifying for the nervous (and giggling) tourists… but luckily their safari guide appears to be a true professional who managed to keep things cool, calm and collected.
“Relax guys. We can’t go now. We have to sit it out,” he says with a super-casual voice at one particularly scary moment.

Something had possibly spooked the elephant herd to run across the road in the first place, but afterwards their charging was likely down to being protective of their young, with many babies scattered amongst the herd.
