Safari Sunday: A grumpy hippo

Posted by barb on Mar 5, 2017 in Pictures, Recreation, Travels |

I’m pretty sure every puddle that can support a hippo in Botswana *has* a hippo – and don’t be fooled if you don’t see one!

Our guide found this guy hanging out in a small pond near our camp in Kwara. He pulled up close to the pond so that we could get a few pictures. Unfortunately, the hippo wasn’t very happy with our truck sitting so close to his pond. He stood up, turned around, and looked at us annoyed (all the while keeping his mouth as much in the water as possible, which struck me as weird). Finally, he decided we weren’t moving, got up and walked out of the pond toward the nearby trees.
