A Bloat of Hippos

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Alexandra Roosenburg

When visiting this park in Western Tanzania, we were quickly made aware that it had the highest density of hippos of any park in the country. Here, we found a pool full of hippos, just packed in, one atop the other, trying to stay cool in the water.

Location: Katavi National Park, Tanzania
