Grumpy elephant dashes to couple visitors; safari stopped it using only one gesture

Nice move, dude!

An experienced safari guide has successfully stopped a tragedy happened when an elephant in Kruger National Park was dashing to the couple visitors. 

The newlywed couple Brett Larsen and Lulu Shi, from New Zealand, arrived South Africa to have their honeymoon in early April. They were going the Kruger National Park with two safari guides when an elephant ran towards them.

The giant animal moved quickly to the couple. One of the guides, Dean Oellofse, walked and stand in front of them when the crowd and the animal have only 10m distance. He raised his right hand, opened his palm, and spoke a slogan. The elephant stopped quickly and turned to the forest, which they exclaimed this is amazing.

The elephant wanted to dash to them at least for three times while Dean used to the same gesture and slogan to drive it away, without lifting his gun to threaten the animals. Dean also asked the couple to be calm in order not to ignite the elephant.
