Terrifying moment wild elephants charge screaming tourists in Sri Lanka

This is the terrifying moment two wild elephants charged a safari vehicle full of tourists in northern Sri Lanka.

The incident took place at the Minneriya National Park in North Central Province on June 4th.

According to reports, a group of safari-goers was travelling through the park when they noticed a herd of wild elephants in the distance.

It was almost dark with not many vehicles around, they said.
