This is why you should always get the extra insurance when renting a car to go on an African safari:
"My sister and I drove in our Golf behind them. We saw a group of elephants and started taking photos when we saw the elephant head our way. "A game ranger shouted that I must turn the car off, which I did."
Mr Beltrame then thought that the elephant would walk past them. Instead, it seemingly decided to take a closer look at the occupants of the car. "We got very scared when he stood by us and put his foot on the hood of the car," Mr Beltrame added. "We waited about five or six minutes, sitting without moving, waiting, before the elephant continued walking. "It was an unbelievable experience."
Needless to say, the roof was dented a little bit. Okay, a lot. Subhajit Banerjee of Telegraph has the story: Link (Photo: Barcroft Media)
