The story behind the image
Yesterday I shared an image of a place where swimming is definitely recommend.
Now, here’s a place where swimming is definitely not recommended: Crooks Corner at the north-eastern border of the Kruger National Park. Here, the small Luvuvhu river meets the big Limpopo river, and here three countries meet (South Africa, Mocambique, and Zimbabwe.) So, it’s not a big surprise to find a nice viewpoint here. Along the road to the viewpoint you will find small picnic areas that invite for a peaceful lunch break.
Oh wait. When I looked closer at the sand banks in the middle of the Luvuvhu, I realized that they were full of crocodiles who took a nap in the sun! Eeeek. I took a number of shots with my tele lens and went back to our car, slightly shaking from the sight.
