As I have warned several times on this forum, it is a dice with death if you drive from Johannesburg to Kruger at night.
An Irish tourist narrowly escaped death Thursday night when his car crashed into a hippo on the N4 highway.
After the crash the hippo attacked the vehicle, throwing it over. The car is more or less a write-off.
This happended east of Nelspruit while the Irish tourist was on his way to Kruger.
His holiday is, well, over.
I know of several other incidents of people crashing into hippos and crocodiles on the N4 highway.
