Once in a lifetime sighting!


Indeed it's weird why it's without the herd. It shows how opportunistic predators are! In our work we've actually recorded wild dogs trying to take down a young elephant.

The elephant would have had a chance, and a good chance, if it would have stayed on his feet, but it quickly fell over.


I don't know what the elephant population is in Madikwe, but I do know that the lion population has been unsustainably high, to the point that they actually had to remove several dozen lions.


BTW, what is the noise in the background? A generator or waterpump or something?

This happened on the LIVE streaming safari in front of thousands of people watching, in the Greater Kruger on the 15 of January 2015
Scary video of an elephant unexpectedly turning towards an open safari vehicle and poking her tusks effortlessly through the metal of the Land Rover.
Taken in the Sabi Sands in the Greater Kruger National Park in South Africa.

Thank you to the guide for showing this elephant the utmost respect!

That was pretty scary indeed. I was not aware of all these videos...oh dear, now I am not going to be tending to matters at home but watching videos!


He showed her much respect and left; I wonder why she was still mad as ~ an elephant!


@africaaddict, thanks for adding to my daily visits to ST :wacko:

I tried to show a Vimeo video, but the player didn´t show as expected.


Sorry about that.

This was a video we shared on our YouTube page called, "An Attempted Hunt". It certainly was a change of pace for this cheetah! The outcome is not what most would expect.
