Zambia: Hippos in Kasanka National Park

When approaching a group of hippos in the wild, these marvellous animals aren`t the only ones you will hear breathing heavily! We`re on a high and steep riverbank, on the inside of a bend. About two meters in front of us, hard to see but easy to hear is a hippo, it`s eyes just above the surface of the water. At least two others are audible, off to the left and right. They can`t reach us, except through a small slope to the right, a bit too close for comfort.
