Activity Description

The hippopotamus, also called the hippo, common hippopotamus or river hippopotamus, is a large, mostly herbivorous, semiaquatic mammal and ungulate native to sub-Saharan Africa. It is one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae, the other being the pygmy hippopotamus which you can see in our Wildlife Centre near the Boma restaurant.

The tour meanders through the green belt along a gravel pathway that leads visitors alongside the various habitats while our guide enthuses you with fun facts and talks about the animals you are viewing. You will catch sight of some of our lions, tigers and various antelope up close and personal! At the end of the path, the surprise and delight of the Hippo enclosure awaits! Spot the world’s third largest land mammals sunning themselves on the treelined banks of the river from the safety of the elevated viewing deck.

This adventure is particularly special for young ones and is a great learning experience for school children and home schoolers alike.
