Love the causeway, particularly at sunrise. Hippos, open-mouthed crocodiles!
One evening, we actually watched a crocodile walk across it.

Great photos!
Actually I don’t think anyone has ever taken me across Taylor’s Crossing. It looks really beautiful. I like Finfoot Crossing, but because of all the birds one can see, I like Causeway Crossing very much. It’s fun to have a look at those crocodiles and the birds are always so relaxed there that one can take great pictures of them.

Thank you for highlighting the crossings over the Sand River Patrick, and I agree that being in the middle of a crossing at sunrise is magical. To choose a favorite is not possible for me as each one has represented a special moment in time. I do love the causeway because I spotted my first hammerkop there, watching him wait at the edge and then in a split second, catch a fish. The resident croc, jaws partially open, ready for a tilapia to swim into his toothy prison, always makes me smile. But then, Finfoot crossing offers more excitement, the Landy, rocking from side to side as it slips over the rocks, and thankfully, we’ve never become stuck. Taylor is beautiful, a special place to stop midway, just because. So, no favorite for me – they’re all wonderful!

Patrick Londolozi is rich in water ways with three crossing and the sand river. So much benefit from the water and off course the scenery is to die for. Beautiful foto of the Senegal bush male jumping over the rocks. I have not been to Londolozi yet, but appreciate every email I get with these stunning foto’s of the leopards and all the wild animals. Londolozi is a paradise all on it’s own.

Patrick, thanks for the tour of the crossings of the sand river.

Fun tour of the crossings, and great images Patrick!
