5 Most Dangerous Places To Swim

By Manish Choudhary

1. Shark Alley, South Africa

Known for its great white sharks, swimming freely here is risky. 

2. The Nile River, Africa

Home to crocodiles, hippos, and bull sharks, the strong currents make swimming dangerous. 

3. Lake Natron, Tanzania

Its extremely high pH level can harm your skin and eyes. The water's red due to unique organisms. 

4. The Amazon Basin, South America

Full of piranhas, caimans, and other dangerous creatures, its murky waters and strong currents make it unsafe for swimming. 

5. New Smyrna Beach, Florida

Rip currents here are strong and have caused many drownings. Only swim where lifeguards are present.
