Elephants Show Tourists Why You Shouldn't Get Out Your Car


This is the dramatic moment where tourists that were just about to enter the world-famous Kruger National Park found themselves having to try to outrun a herd of elephants on their way to the river.





This close-call sighting was filmed by 27-year-old Security Manager, Andre Schwab, while trying to enter the Kruger Park via the Paul Kruger Gate.




Andre tells LatestSightings.com the story: “Before entering the park, we stopped on the bridge to see what wildlife we could spot. A herd of elephants came out of the bush and started crossing the road.”




“The matriarch was extremely aware of the people out their car, and she seemed quite unhappy with 2 tourists walking right along their path! She, and the rest of her herd, started charging towards two women that were looking at the monument commemorating Paul Kruger."


WATCH:





“It was the women’s lucky day and they made it to safety by the skin of their teeth! Be aware of your surroundings and the behavior of the animals - this is a national park with wild animals.”




“The sighting ended with everyone laughing at how quickly this could have gone south.”
