Lake Panic at Kruger National Park

Lake Panic at Kruger National Park  |  Kruger Park, South Africa  |  One of the treasures of coming to Africa, is to be able to observe and enjoy animals in the wild, on their own habitat where there is almost to no interaction with human beings. Lake Panic is one of the spots in Kruger Park do so. Lake Panic is an earthen dam on the Mafunyana Creek.

Lake Panic, a small earthen dam 1,5km north-west of Skukuza, derives its name from the panic caused when the dam’s newly built wall threatened to break after a cloud burst. Only a short drive away from our lodge, Tinga Lodge at Kruger Park is this paradise of wildlife, where birds, hippopotamus, crocodiles, tortoises among others gather to rest, bathe and drink.

Listening to the hippos echoing  across the waters and the fish eagles calls welcoming you to the true soul of Africa. CM
