Frightening Video of a Charging African Rhino That Will Not Stop
Going on an African safari probably comes with a lot of thrills and excitement but the people in this video got more than they bargained for that’s for sure. See some lions they thought. Maybe some giraffes eating leaves, a couple of elephants playing in a watering hole, you know the the safe stuff. But a MASSIVE rhinoceros springing full speed (which is shockingly fast) at you couldn’t have been on their itinerary. Check out this TikTok posted by user ‘@WildlyAfrica’ where you can see a full grown rhino charging at a group of people while they are driving away…in REVERSE!
Rhinos can actually run really fast and there’s no doubt if the rhino caught up to this Jeep, it would have squashed it and most likely the people inside as well.
The dude driving has some major skills to be able to go backwards, as long as he did and as fast as he was able to. It was a straight away but there is no room for error when a frightening, pissed off wild rhino is barreling at your vehicle.
This rhino was not going to give up, it runs for a straight minute, only slowing down occasionally to catch it’s breath.
The internet is full of safari gone wrong videos and terrifying encounters with African wild animals. One we remember is of a wild, gigantic hippopotamus charging at a boat going full speed in an African body of water.
The statistics aren’t very good on how many people are killed by rhinos every year but that doesn’t mean it never happens. These people sure were lucky they had such a bad ass, calm, getaway driver to floor it in reverse and save their butts. Do you think you’d have what it takes to reverse away from this charging rhinoceros?
