SATURDAY CRITTERS - Lifupa Conservation Lodge (Part 9 ) - Hippos

These photographs were shot from Lufupa Conservation Lodge and the Hippos were on the other side of the lake quite a distance away however I thought you would like to see them and the video at the end. 








If the video does not appear below CLICK HERE. 



It was so relaxing a peaceful at the lodge and in fact other than 2 men who were there to protect the place from poachers, we were the only ones.  Bliss.

Many thanks for your visit and also to all those who leave comments.

  1. It's hard to imagine hippos belong to the most dangerous animals in the world. We have seen them in The Kruger Park in South Africa, their appearance seems so friendly!
    Great photos, Margaret.

  3. Like Marleen I find it hard to accept that hippos kill more people than any other animal (except our own species). They look so benign.

  23. I really like Hippos! We have a rather weather beaten old Grey Hippo in this house - he is my daughter's special soft toy. He is called, with startling clarity and not much imagination "Hippo".
