"It is completely not normal! Black rhinos if anything are more aggressive, so the fact that a white rhino did this is even more unusual." - Latest Sightings. 

Watch the intense moment caught on camera as an angry white rhino decides to charge safari goers for nearly half a kilometer! 

Rian Boshoff, financial advisor, filmed this experience and tells the story: "We were out on a game drive with Taxan at Djuma, Sabi Sands, inside the Greater Kruger, looking for wildlife.We were driving along riverbed when this bull white rhino crossed the road in front of us.He stood still right next to the road, looking calm, and we went past him to continue our leopard search. 

"As we did that, the rhino suddenly charged us!

"As you can imagine, the guide stepped on the gas and we were going around corners like madness! The rhino continued to charge us, and didn’t look like he was going to stop any time soon.

"The guide decided to head for the bush by making a sharp right turn, trying to throw the rhino off guard, because of their bad sight. Needless to say, the rhino just kept charging. So we decided to head back to the road, so we could have a clear path to drive away on.

"After all the chaos the guide informed us that it wasn’t the first time this bull charged him and he doesn’t know what the story is with this bull and why he does this. If it wasn’t for the guide with the right experience, it could have been much worse!"
