With the rivers of Greater Kruger and Kruger National Park rising and flooding, the animals were left to figure out how to cross the rising water.


Greater Kruger, South Africa (22 February 2021) – Cyclone Eloise left quite a lot of rain in her wake. For weeks after she made landfall, there has been non-stop rainy weather.

We are not complaining because it has rained in parts of South Africa that have not had rain in months or even years. Rivers that were bone dry have flowed and overflowed in the weeks since the cyclone arrived.

This has been some of the rainiest weather in the last few years, and many dams have gone beyond full. All great and exciting news indeed!

But while we humans have been rejoicing about the rain and the water that will be available to us in the coming seasons, the animals have been rather annoyed by it all.

We recently shared a video of Buffalo getting a rude awakening when a river broke its banks. Now Latest Sightings Kruger shared their video compilation of rivers flooding and animals reacting to all the extra water.

Take a look at the incredible sightings below.
