Ethiopia – « Crocodile Market » – Lake Chamo

When I heard about our trip to “Crocodile Market”, I first thought it was probably a place to sell to tourists some bags and belts made of crocodile skin! In fact I was completely mistaking…

It was sunset time when we had a surprising boat trip on the Lake Chamo. I could not have imagined that the bank on the other side of the lake would be covered with so huge Nile crocodiles, some of them measuring up to 6 meters… They were hundreds of massive reptiles lying in the sun with the mouths wide open to regulate their temperature. When the boat approached them at few meters, I felt suddenly a current of adrenalin. It was really impressive … but I “survive”!!!
