Photo Safari Feature
The Hippo Hide is located on a deep corner at the confluence of the Luangwa and Mwamba rivers. Here hundreds of hippos congregate throughout the season in both bachelor and breeding pods. The hippo hide is carved into the bank of the river directly above these pods and its inhabitants are hidden by a grass screen. Comfortable seating and cleverly designed camera props make this a photographers dream. Yawning and fighting wildlife pictures guaranteed!
Watch the Crocodile
Also watch our resident crocodile who has learnt to snatch unsuspecting Oxpeckers from the hippos back. Watch elephants, giraffe and buffalo coming in to drink – it was here the BBC filmed an enormous crocodile taking a buffalo in the Wild Africa Series.
