The unexpected can happen out on a wilderness trail at any moment, so you always have to be prepared. Alan McSmith Safaris does not recommend the following video as standard guiding procedure, but watch how he uses a calm energy to diffuse what becomes a dangerous situation.
Alan McSmith puts his 30 years of experience to work when he’s charged by an elephant while out on safari. He knows to remain calm and stand his ground, and the elephant respects it by halting and slamming on the brakes.
But it’s not over quite yet as the elephant continues to size the man up and come at him once again. In the end, Alan McSmith wins again, and the elephant walks away for good. Amazing!
