Astonish everyone by realizing that gazelles can cross rivers teeming with crocodiles at a height of over five meters (VIDEO)

A courageous lechwe risks crossing the crocodile-infested Chobe River in search of better grazing but is pursued by a famished crocodile.

Caitlyn Earwaker, a 24-year-old veterinary nurse, and her family were on a boat cruise when they witnessed this incredible sighting. Caitlyn and Lucy Whitehead shared their story and footage with LatestSightings.com.

“As we cruised along the Chobe River in Botswana, we were treated to the sight of numerous animals coming to the river’s edge to drink. Our guide suddenly pointed out a lechwe (a large antelope with a distinctive red coat) swimming across the river. It was a peaceful scene until a crocodile emerged from the water and made a beeline for the lechwe.”

“We all held our breath as the lechwe, sensing the danger, began to swim faster. The crocodile, determined to make a meal of the lechwe, hastened his pace. The lechwe and crocodile continued their high-speed chase across the river. The lechwe, with its powerful legs, was able to stay just ahead of the crocodile, but it was close.”

Lechwe are medium-to-large antelope that prefer marshes and river systems. They have specially adapted long legs that allow them to easily power through the water when pursued. These antelope are commonly found in areas of Botswana such as the Chobe River System.Antelope defies danger wades through a river full of crocodiles(video).f - Malise

“At one point, the crocodile snapped its jaws shut, missing the lechwe by mere inches. The lechwe, sensing that it was in the clear, began to swim towards the shore.”Antelope defies danger wades through a river full of crocodiles(video).f - Malise

“The crocodile, not ready to give up its prey, continued its pursuit. We were all amazed at the sheer athleticism and determination of both the lechwe and the crocodile. The lechwe, with its powerful legs, was able to swim faster and more efficiently than the crocodile, but the crocodile’s strength and endurance allowed it to keep up.”Antelope defies danger wades through a river full of crocodiles(video).f - Malise

Crocodiles, being such large reptiles, do not commonly hunt prey by chasing it down. They tend to prefer stalking and ambushing. However, they will not pass up the opportunity when presented.Antelope defies danger wades through a river full of crocodiles(video).f - Malise

“As the lechwe reached the shore, we all let out a collective sigh of relief. It was a truly incredible experience to witness such a dramatic and intense struggle. The Chobe River is truly a must-visit destination for anyone interested in wildlife and nature. Whether you’re a seasoned traveler or a first-time visitor, you’re sure to be captivated by the beauty and drama of this stunning region.”Antelope defies danger wades through a river full of crocodiles(video).f - Malise

Antelopes are known for their agility and speed, but one antelope defied danger in a different way. It was a hot summer day, and the antelope was desperately thirsty. However, the nearest water source was a river notorious for its crocodile-infested waters.

Most animals would not dare to venture near the river, but this antelope was determined to quench its thirst. It cautiously approached the riverbank and observed the crocodiles basking in the sun.

Undeterred, the antelope took a deep breath and waded into the river. The crocodiles immediately noticed the antelope and began to converge on it. The antelope remained calm and kept moving forward, dodging the snapping jaws of the crocodiles.

The crocodiles were surprised by the antelope’s fearlessness, and their attempts to catch it failed. The antelope finally reached the other side of the river, panting and exhausted, but safe.

From that day on, the antelope became a legend among the animals of the savannah. Its daring act inspired other animals to face their fears and overcome obstacles. The antelope’s bravery proved that sometimes, taking a risk is worth it, especially when the reward is as essential as quenching one’s thirst.
