A dramatic incident unfolded at South Africa's Pilanesberg Game Reserve when safari guide Bongani Yende's quick thinking saved tourists from a dangerous encounter with an angry elephant. A video captured the terrifying moment when the elephant lifted their safari jeep at the Rathlogo Bird Hide. Tourist Eldine Arendse recounted the harrowing experience, sharing footage with Latest Sightings, which was later uploaded on YouTube on March 21.

Yende swiftly got four tourists back into the vehicle while others remained in the hide. With little time to spare, Yende decided to confront the elephant. Despite attempts to scare it away by revving the engine and driving toward it, the bull stood its ground.
