What started off as a lovely sighting of a  magnificent giraffe soon turned sour as a 13ft Male giraffe chased a group of tourists in a safari jeep for 2 miles.

Scroll down for video!

The giraffe saw the 4×4 miles away and started coming straight for it. The animal kicked out at the driver and smashed the wing mirror. Luckily no one was injured and though the tourists were left shaken they were able to laugh at the incident. Giraffe are normally placid creatures and this rare behavior was believed to have been triggered by a hormonal imbalance.
