Top travel videos: lioness hissing at car, Psy's guide to Korea

2013-07-05 13:25

This week's top travel videos include a lioness hissing at her reflection in a car, Korean pop icon, Psy, giving you some quick advice and a knee-tingling tour of the world's tallest building. VIEW

There are some seriously crazy things that happen out there in the world, aren't there? From natural disasters to random acts of kindness with large ripple effects, not a week goes by without reports about something wholly awe-inspiring or terrifying.

And while the world may always have been this way, the big difference these days is that someone on the scene is bound to capture something of the spectacle on camera for the rest of us to see. It's a controversial topic, yes, but makes for good internet entertainment.

This week we take a look at some incredible moments captured by a steady hand and a keen eye.

Firstly, watch as a spooked impala escapes the hungry cheetah on his tail by leaping right into a vehicle full of game viewers in the Kruger National Park. The funniest part of the whole scene is the way the antelope calmly climbs out of the vehicle a few seconds after entering.

In the second video, two brothers who went kayaking just off shore of Oldsmar, Florida managed to film the formation of a water tornado, aka a waterspout. Imagine being out there while that extreme swirl of wind, water and clouds form. Scary stuff!

It seems like cheetah around the country may be having a bad case of winter munchies, as we see another one take on actor Adam Sandler during a close encounter at an unnamed location here in South Africa. Sandler was in the country for a few months to shoot new film Blended with actress Drew Barrymore.

Then, finally, just for fun, Where's Wally as read by German film director Werner Hertzog, because Wally is after all one of the world's most intrepid travellers, or what?
