Pictured: Holidaymakers had a close call when a curious elephant poked its head into their safari jeep to look for food and nearly tipped the vehicle over.<br />
<br />
Dramatic photos show the enormous Asian elephant thrust its trunk and tusks through the window of the jeep, getting them caught as the panicked driver tries to speed away.<br />
<br />
The truck comes close to toppling over as one fearful passenger even hangs from its side in a bid to avoid the upset animal.<br />

Wildlife photographer Sergey Savvi captured the startling encounter while on safari in Sri Lanka's Yala National Park with his wife Julia. SEE OUR COPY FOR MORE DETAILS. <br />
