Swimmers disturbed as elephant takes a drink from their pool

Swimming in a private pool in the African bush is surely one of life's dream moments - so the last thing you'd want is to be disturbed by an unwelcome visitor. But it looks like these holidaymakers got exactly that when they found themselves sharing their moment - with an adult bull elephant.

The enormous animal, complete with terrifying tusks, decided to stop by for a drink in the pool, apparently completely unaware of the humans swimming in it. They very sensibly stayed still and allowed their uninvited guest to help himself... Terrifying or what?

This video, posted by Kerry Dunne on youtube, captures the scene.
