    So what happened to "pop the clutch and floor it!" :)

    As my first PH said many years ago- "I don't care what they say about the other 4,
    elephants are the most dangerous animal walking the planet, you can't out run them and you
    can't climb a tree. if they want you, you're dead!"

    Not sure the piece of donated ivory is going to cover the body work. The deductible, possibly.

    They need to make a TV ad out of that one. The vehicle held up surprisingly well against that behemoth.

    In Hluhluwe on a self drive I made damn sure I got out of the way.
    I watched people split a herd and thought I was going to get some video with about the same result.
    The driver just escaped without the vehicle getting some body work.

    They are dangerous and it is not a zoo.
