“Together”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Very interesting seeing all the hippos in the pool splashing water on themselves and moving against each other. Worth seeing.

“Lots of hippos!”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Large gathering of hippos. They were obviously tired, because they were just laying around. My kids loved the little hippos. It was warm enough that none of them got out of the water. The yawning was great, wish we had been faster with the camera.

“Hippos every where!”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Great chance to watch hippos for as long as you like - and get out of the car to get up close too.

Great opportunity to get that prize yawning shot!

“Want to see Hippos?”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Then you must go here! They will be there. If you are patient and have binoculars/strong camera, you can easily get great views of them out of the water too!

“Heaps of hippos - disgusting odor!”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

I will never think of hippos the same way again. There are hippos literally on top of each other in a relatively small body of water. Hold your nose and enjoy.
