Video: Elephant Chases Tourists’ Open Safari Vehicle for Miles
Being charged by a large elephant in musth in the Kruger national park, the ranger allowed elephant to gain ground on vehicle several times in order to tire it out so it would not endanger less experienced driver behind or travelling towards us.

“Our group, Tracy Mansfield and two daughters Abbie and Katie Mansfield along with their boyfriends Ben Wild and Ian Pots and myself – driven by Sefapane game ranger Elias Shai ( who also freelances for Kruger Park in the winter).
We had spent the whole day travelling through the park particularly looking for lions which was challenging due to the recent rain and long grass. We where all nodding off as we had been on the road since 5am and this happened at about 4.30pm.
This encounter sure did wake us up and made for an incredible experience. This happened while driving south about 25 minute drive from Phalaborwa gate.”- Video Taker
