The Kruger National Park in South Africa is a highly regarded and sought after destination for those who love safari and is enchanted to explore colors, animals, and African territories. But if you’re in the area or you are going to ride it short, do not go for a swim or a ride in a canoe on the river Limpopo. The reason is as simple and indisputable as many as 15,000 Nile crocodiles, the largest freshwater crocodiles in the world and voracious predators. They have earned the freedom escaping from a farm after a flood.

The Limpopo River where many animals live (now a little less comfortable) already welcomed a number of Nile crocodiles, but now it’s definitely overbooked and it shall all be the cost of human who are in danger of getting approached by these animals when they get near their new home. In the meantime local residents have to defend their homes.
