The team of wildlife photographers were shooting in the mountainous Limpopo Province of north east South Africa when the enraged young adult turned on them, ramming into the jeep and attempting to flip it with her tusks. The crew caught the hair-raising attack on camera as their driver desperately reversed in an attempt to escape, before smashing into a log on the road. Luckily none of the team were injured, although much of their camera equipment was destroyed in the alarming event that happened on October 27.
The crew, a group of photographers working for Black Bean Productions, were then able to intimidate the elephant by standing up in the jeep, causing the startled animal to back off.
