Tourists Terrified When They Are Caught In Elephant Stampede

Terrifying Elephant Stampede Frightens Tourists In South AfricaThey came to South Africa looking to see the wildlife up close and personal. But then they were caught in a terrifying elephant stampede, and suddenly they were a little too close to nature.

Tourists on a safari in Kruger National Park wanted to get the chance to see wild animals and perhaps photograph them. This particular group didn’t expect to see a herd of wild elephants stampeding.

The elephants were trying to frighten off some lions, but when they happened upon the vehicle on the road, they took it also as a threat. Several of the larger elephants charged the vehicle, warning it off, and eventually the tour leader drove away to keep the tourists safe.
