Elephant in Botswana chases tourists down dirt track

  • Footage shows the enraged creature fiercely headbutt the vehicle several times 
  • Terrifying incident happened at the Chobe National Park in northern Botswana
  • The elephant eventually slowed its pace and allowed the tourists to drive away

This is the terrifying moment a wild elephant ferociously headbutts a safari vehicle full of tourists so hard its tusk rips off.

Footage shows the majestic creature emerging from the wilderness and chasing the jeep down a sandy dirt track.

It then headbutts the moving vehicle several times, shoving tourists forward in their seats, at the Chobe National Park in northern Botswana.

Nail-biting footage shows the elephant making a deafening trumpeting sound as it hurtles towards the group.

It rams into the back of the Jeep with such force that one of its tusks can be heard ripping off.

The enraged creature then slows its pace and lets the vehicle drive away.

Seconds earlier, the herd could be seen crossing a dirt track as the tourists passed by in the open-door vehicle.

One elephant scurried off into the wilderness with her baby.

But the angry member of the herd behind made a beeline for the spectators, who can be heard shrieking and laughing during the commotion. 

The astonishing footage was captured last week by one of the tourists sitting inside the Jeep.
