South Africa: Five crocodiles introduced at Tau Game Lodge

The Tau Game Lodge in the Madikwe Game Reserve, located 90 km north of Zeerust and only three to four hours' drive from both Johannesburg and Pretoria, has introduced five crocodiles to the waterhole in front of the lodge. The five crocs are just three years old, but even so they’re already two metres long.


The crocodiles, which are coming from a crocodile farm in Groot Marico, have been notched for identification purposes. They are currently in a holding area on one side of the waterhole, where they will be given time to adapt to their new environment. A croc-proof fence has been erected to ensure the safety around the waterhole.
