An elephant living in Kruger National Park in South Africa wasn't up for visitors.

Australian tourists on a South African safari got a little more than they bargained for as this video attests.

The huge elephant decided to charge and ram a truck full of terrified tourists, knocking their vehicle from side to side as it beat a swift retreat, albeit gunning it in reverse.

The footage of the attack shows the elephant charging the truck head on while trumpeting - the noise they make when they're highly stimulated/or pretty annoyed - and flapping its ears (an act of superiority and show of strength).

African elephants can weigh anywhere between 2267 and 6350 kilograms and can grow up to 13 feet, according to National Geographic.
