Unseen Crocodile action! Nile Crocodile plunges +/- 10 meters into the Sabie River with Zebra kill...

What a slide, dive! Very opportunistic move from a couple of crocodiles.
This was really a first for us to see several Nile Crocodile plunge more than 10 meters high from the riverbank into the Sabie River in Kruger National Park. Remember the crocodile is about 4 to 5 meters long.

Our valued Guests Moss Fairleigh and his wife was just as surprised and took unique & special photographs of this unseen behaviour. The Lions made the kill and walked off thinking that it was safe, most probably to have a drink or to relax in the sade after having such a big meal. Thinking the kill was safe from crocodiles and out of reach was a big mistake as they are avid climbers of river banks and reached the kill in no time. The largest crocodile took all his power and slide down backwards with the kill into the river and not letting go of its prize. In the water, it was fair game and many crocodiles joined in the feast.

The Lion later released something was wrong and came back to have a look and just to see the hopeless situation they found them, selves in and lost their second helping.

This was truly a once in a lifetime experience, well done to Hennie Bekker as the safari guide for the trip and sticking around and let nature takes its course.
