Directions to Crooks Corner View
Crooks Corner in the Kruger National Park, overlooks the Limpopo and Luvuvhu Rivers, at the point where the borders of South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique meet.
During the 1900's, it was an ideal point for shady characters of all types to meet and exchange stolen goods, such as guns and ivory, and flee from one country to another, hence the name "Crooks Corner"
This viewpoint, and its approach, also has large numbers of majestic trees, including huge fig trees, jackalberries and forests of fever trees. Commonly seen in the area are herds of elephant and buffalo, kudu, nyala, hippos and crocodile, and incredibly prolific bird life.
It is certainly orth looking out for are species that only exist in the Northern areas. These include many bird and animal species, the Nyala, the Samango monkey and the Crested Guinea Fowl. Hippo and crocodile can be seen in large numbers.
Crooks Corner is steeped in history and surrounded by beauty. If you are staying in the North - the closest camp is websitePunda Maria (45km / 2hr away) - this is a "must visit" viewpoint. After visiting Crooks Corner, it is then time to relax next to the Luvuvhu River at the Pafuri Picnic site - only about 10km / 24 min away.
