Grumeti Crocodiles

The crocodiles that live in the Grumeti River are renowned as the largest in Africa. Feasting on the casualties from the river crossings of the wildebeest, they can grow up to six meters long! There is an enthralling and dramatic tension in watching the wildebeest gather themselves to cross the river, as the crocodiles float nearby, awaiting their chance for dinner.

This fearsome predator has a loving nature to its young. Although most reptiles leave their eggs and move on, Nile crocodiles ferociously guard their nests until the eggs hatch.

The Nile crocodile will wait for hours and even days for the suitable moment to attack. Once their prey has come close enough, the fast moving Nile crocodile with its powerful jaws and sharp teeth create a grip that is almost impossible to escape from. They can easily hold down even large prey underwater to drown them.

If you time your visit just right, you can watch the spectacular sight of wildebeest versus crocodiles. Between May and August, when the great wildebeest and zebra migration crosses the Grumeti River, the Grumeti crocs are waiting to feed. In fact, they've been waiting a long time. Witnessing this age old battle of survival is simply a magnificent sight indeed.

Throughout the year, crocodiles, lions, cheetah, hyenas, and leopards are plentiful in the area.

The crocodiles of the Grumeti are gigantic and worth seeing.
