Elephant Overturns Car

Since some people who are going on safaris read this Kilimanjaro blog, I thought I would link to this story about a family on safari in South Africa. Basically, a pissed off elephant overturned their car while on safari in Kruger National Park. Since Tanzania is loaded with elephants, many of which can get agitated from all the safari vehicles, it’s best to keep in mind that elephants are very powerful. Although you are inside and somewhat safe in an insulted hunk of steel, that still doesn’t stop an elephant from attacking you.

I would like to stress that all my years with seeing elephants most have been gentle creatures. Only when they are provoked (like driving your LandRover super close to them or getting close to their children), do they tend to get a bit pissed off.
