Last Feast Of The Crocodiles
1 x 60'
In the northern tip of South Africa’s Kruger National Park the Levuhvu River has dried up during the most severe drought in living memory. There remains only one pool of water deep enough to hold more than the hundred crocodiles and twenty hippopotamus that have nowhere else to go.
The local wildlife must drink here too and must take their chances with the crocodiles that wait in ambush under the water. To avoid the crocs, warthogs dig pits next to the pool. Baboons try to guard these pits for themselves but the other drinkers are desperate too.
This beautiful film does not offer a happy ending; instead the wildlife lover has the rare opportunity to watch unusual, inventive behaviour as animals try to survive in the most extreme conditions of drought.
