The dramatic images show that a giant elephant crashed into a car after it was startled by motor vehicles as it plunged down a road in Kenya.
The giant female elephant passed the car and was ready to trample it before the driver ejected after another driver alerted the animal by racing down the country road.
The scene was captured on camera by Mwangi Kirubi, 43, waiting in the car to take a picture in Amboseli National Park as two other vehicles rushed past him.
That prompted the herd’s matriarchal to approach the fourth car, where some of Mwangi’s fellow photographers were waiting – forcing them to flee.
Mwangi, from Nairobi, was camping in the national park when the dramatic scene unfolded.
“We split into two groups and traveled in two cars,” he said. We were sitting peacefully enjoying the elephants’ companionship until two other vehicles rushed towards us and urged us to give way to them.
‘I don’t know where they went, but they rushed and bypassed the park’s 40 km / h [25mph] speed limit.
‘I didn’t think it provoked the elephants too much, until from inside my car I saw the elephants’ baby moving towards another vehicle, which contained other photographers and threatened to attack.
