The unexpected incident happened just about a seven-minute drive into the park.

The ministerial convoy could not move as the elephant moved around the vehicles causing fear among members of delegation including journalists.

TV3 reports that the timely intervention by a tour guide who was apparently on his rounds in the park brought some relief to the fear-stricken entourage.
