028. ‘SUNDOWNERS’. Hippos. Zikomo Lodge Area, South Luangwa National Park, Zambia
On this evening’s safari we found some hippos resting in the Luangwa River. All seems fairly quiet, no yawns, but maybe just a few occasional grunts. The water level is still reasonably high, allowing the hippos more space to relax. When levels are really low, there are almost too many hippos for the limited supply of river territory and fights break out.
