Nearly every night the 2 hippo's are lazing in Orpen waterhole. I thought hipppo's fed at night and stayed in the water in the heat of the day.
If so - I'm wondering where these 2 go to in the daytime. I don't think the waterhole is deep enough for them to be completely submerged. Anyone have a clue? :think: :think: :think:

Hi impyim :D :D

I've been wondering about the hippos too :thumbs_up:
I was hoping maybe the Orpen rangers might be able to provide more more information about where they go during the day :pray:

I was also wondering if the 2 regulars we see in the pool are a mother and calf :hmz:
Last night they were joined by a 3rd hippo which I think was a male. He seemed very interested in the female.

Is the last photo a hippo and a ???? leopard (the legs look a bit short ????).

It would be nice if the rangers knew where the hippo hang out during the day. Not sure how to ask them or find out.

I'm at long last off to Kruger again Melph 68. Next May with a friend (my SO hates the long plane trip and isn't so keen). I booked it as soon as the bookings opened so I could get the camps and huts I wanted. So excited already. :thumbs_up:
