From an old joke book I found in my desk drawer:

Q: How do you stop a charging elephant?

A: Take away his credit cards

I'll pause whilst you compose yourself. Did I mention that the joke is from the "elephant jokes" section of the book? There are plenty more where that came from, but I'm afraid you've just read the best of the lot.

This video proves that elephants probably don't have credit cards, don't really have a sense of humor, and are seemingly sick and tired of loads of tourists taking their pictures. That, and when your safari operator asks if you want extra insurance on your Range Rover, you should probably say yes:

Yeah, that should buff right out.
