But beware that every year from 3 to 5 tourists get hurt or even die from a croc's attack. Usually, such unpleasant accidents occur because of travellers​ who plunge into the water while drunk, or just carelessly go off the beaten track. Thus, the best way to observe these formidable aquatic reptiles is on a guided boat tour.
