Watch as dozens of elephants spooked by a swarm of bees were filmed dashing away from the distressing buzz.

The comical footage was taken in the Kruger National Park by amateur photographers known as the Raw Wild founders. About 50 hulking elephants stopped what they were doing and charged away in desperation from a buzzing swarm of bees a minute fraction of their size.

Catherine van Eyk, 27, said: “At first we were very confused as to why they were so upset, we thought maybe there was a lion in the area. After watching for awhile we could see a swarm of something in the distance through the binoculars. We presume they were bees but we're not completely sure."
