“We had split into two groups and were in two cars. We were sat peacefully enjoying the company of the elephants until two other vehicles came speeding towards us and hooting for us to make way for them.”

“I have no idea where they were headed, but they were in a hurry and ignoring the 40kph [25mph] speed limit of the park”

“I did not think that it had agitated the elephants too much, until from my car I saw the herd’s matriarch approach the other car, which contained the other photographers and threatened to attack.”

Thankfully, the car was able to get to safety and left the matriarch to return to her herd.
