Hippopotamus


This barrel-shaped vegetarian can be seen in groups of up to 30 individuals along the banks of or in major rivers and lakes. While in water they might be hard to spot with often nothing more than their nostrils and ears above the surface. Hippos are some of the oldest species in Africa, judging by fossils dating back millions of years ago. Anybody interested in prehistoric hippos should visit the West Coast Fossil Park. Those who prefer the breathing, present-day ones will most likely enjoy the iSimangoliso Wetlands (previously St Lucia).
