This sighting was filmed by Colin Pretorius as he had breakfast at La Fera Restaurant at Ngwenya Lodge.
Pretorius tells the story at LatestSightings.com: “We were having breakfast when we spotted a crocodile laying her eggs in the soft white sand for all to see.
“At first it was so mesmerizing to watch the crocodile lay her eggs in the sand, kicking towards the hole she had dug to keep her eggs safe.
“After laboring, the crocodile moved a short distance away to bask in the sun, but close enough to keep an eye on its babies.
“We then noticed a monitor lizard entering the frame, behind the crocodile, trying to sneak closer, to steal its eggs.
“After a monitor lizard was chased some distance from the eggs, a second one showed up with the same goal – to steal the eggs.
“The crocodile tried to chase the lizards away for a while, but the monitors prevailed and got what they came for…Fresh eggs in front of La Fera restaurant.”
