Hippos Hippos Hippos

This morning we are mixing things up a bit.  Up at 6am, quick coffee and a cookie and out in the car by 6:15am.  We did not even get 20m into the drive when we spotted a couple of giraffes and then another 10m later a herd of elephants.  They really are not kidding when they say to be mindful of wild animals in the camp.  I think the highlight of the drive were the hippos and a whole lot of them.  They stay in water all day long and come out in the evening or really early in the morning to feed.   They are very much like the rhinos and the zebras – very shy.

    What is the creature with the dog body, fox face and tail, and large ears?

    Those are jackals, kind of like a fox or coyote – very pretty.
