Weren't they suspended for a while at CB after the hippo incident? I can't remember hearing they were started up again.


Hello, saraf!

I think the hippo incident was at the Hippo pools nearby, nothing to do with morning walks!

The hippo incident was on a morning walk from Croc Bridge.

A hippo rushed out of the river and attacked 2 women on a walk. One was quite seriously injured. As a result, all walks in the southern area of Kruger (mine included from Pkop) were cancelled until the guides got more intensive training.

A walk has its risks, but there are very few incidents for the number of walks that take place. Like airplane crashes. They make the news but the uneventful flights don't.

Nothing stopping forum members posting sightings they have when visiting CB 8)

Or, you could all send me to do it for you. I will happily drive out each morning and evening to bring a sightings report :dance:

This is by far the best, quietest, friendliest and cleanest camp in the Park and with excellent sightings to boot..................but dont tell anybody else about it please.
