Captured by Joe Gregory, this footage shows a stand off between two of Africa’s biggest big 5.
“The reserve is situated in a very remote destination and can only be accessed by a boat, making it quite an exclusive site,” Gregory explained to LatestSightings.com.
Soon after arriving at his accommodation, Gregory headed out on an afternoon game drive. It wasn’t long before they came across a ‘herd of elephant and a crash of rhino’.
“It was an absolutely amazing sensation to see and be a part of the standoff where a young elephant bull in must showed this male white rhino who was boss. We could all physically feel the testosterone aura which surrounded the battlefield of these 2 ancient rivals.”
Gregory explained that the stand off seemed to end in a stalemate, with no clear winner.
“I would, however, say, the balancing act of the branch and the elephant “throwing” the branch at the rhino was a somewhat cheeky ending to the tussle.”
