This is the terrifying moment an angry rhino charged straight into a group of tourists trapped inside a car.
The shocking incident shows the rhino eyeing up the Toyota truck parked on a dusty road near its grassland home.
The rhino’s interest quickly turns sinister and it begins to trot towards the truck. The rhino’s gentle trot then becomes a full sprint and it begins to ram the truck as a group of terrified tourists scream for help.
The footage was taken in Etosha National Park in Namibia….
The black rhinoceros, which inhabits areas across southern and eastern Africa, is considered endangered and weighs up to 3,100lbs. The rhino and has the ability to charge at 35mph and are known for their aggression and willingness to run at any object that is unfamiliar to them.The shocking footage was captured by Alexandra Poier, 48, a tourist in a separate car nearby. She said: “I think the rhino saw a threat and that is why he attacked. To be honest, I was quite scared because it could have been our car. It happened very quickly and suddenly. After he went to the side of our car and we left quickly.”
Thankfully the group of tourists inside the car escaped from the vehicle unhurt.
