A small film crew from Cape Town, South Africa got more than they bargained for when they encountered a wild elephant in South Africa’s Limpopo Province.
YouTube commenter The Mangle Lover referred to this encounter not as Jurassic Park, but “Jurassic Savannah.”
During its filming excursion, the crew’s Toyota discovered a young female elephant in the middle of the road. The driver immediately realizes the wild animal isn’t playing games, beginning evasive maneuvers.
Watch the elephant charge the film crew for several harrowing moments, forcing the driver to accelerate in reverse while eyeing the animal. Just as the elephant closes the gap, the Toyota clips a fallen tree, forcing the car off the road.
After finally nudging the Toyota with her trunk, the elephant retreats, and a collective deep sigh of relief ensues.
