In an exclusive comment to Briefly News, Save the Rhino organisation says:

"Generally, it is very rare for a rhino to charge a vehicle. Often if a rhino feels worried, they will run away from the vehicle, rather than towards it. Of course, unfortunately, it can still happen.
"Nonetheless, generally it shouldn’t get to this point as long as people are giving rhinos enough space and watching them respectfully. Rhinos, like all wild animals, should be observed from a distance and with the support of a local expert."
