A group of tourists' African safari was shattered when a five-tonne elephant smashed its way into their car.

The attack at Kruger National Park in South Africa was captured on camera by one of the tourists and shows the moment an angry male gored through a side window sparking panic and shouts of "go, go, go" among the German passengers.

Luckily none of the men or women were seriously injured.

The footage shows the tourists pulling over to admire a group of elephants as they cross a road, including a small baby who falls over.

But then the trip takes a turn for the worse when two males emerge from shrubs, locked in a tussle.

Without warning, one of them breaks off and charges towards the car, as a panicked woman tries to wind up her window.

But it is not enough as the elephant easily smashes it open, showering the passengers with shards of glass.

Fortunately the assault stops there and the shocked tourists make their escape.
