Situated in Central Africa, the Liwonde National Park is Malawi’s most well-known game reserve. In 1962 unrestricted poaching and hunting almost entirely wiped out the wildlife population of the region.

In 1973 it was declared a national park and game reserve. The Shire River is the region’s lifeline and more than two thousand hippos inhabit a forty kilometer section of the park.

The park’s elephants are no longer killed for their valuable tusks and their numbers, too, are increasing substantially.

The park’s watering holes groups of animals repeatedly gather to drink, an ideal opportunity to observe animals in the wild.

Rare Attack Caught On Video

A visitor to the park just happened to be in the right place at the right time. Even better, they were able to video a rarely seen confrontation between two of the world’s most famous, wildlife animals.

A young Elephant seemed to be getting a drink when a stealthy and daring croc suddenly burst out of the water. The crocodiles’ mighty jaws clamped down onto the youngster’s highly sensitive trunk with its vice-like grip.

Its trunk locked in the beast’s mouth, the scared elephant tried to dislodge the predator’s grip. Lifting it clear out of the water and swinging it around, the stubborn crocodile refused to release its grip.

Luckily, one of the older elephants came storming in and helped the youngster. It seemed as if the adult either stepped on or kicked the crocodile.

The crocodile must have realized that it bite off more than it could chew, and retreated to the safety of the river.
