    Upside Down Hippo

    by Waxbag Written Jan 24, 2004

    Fondest memory: One of the strangest things I saw in Africa was this hippo in the water hole at Masuma Dam. When I approached the water hole I thought this hippo was dead and bloated in the middle of the pool. But no, every ten minutes or so the hippo would flip itself upright for a while and then once again flip itself over upside down so only its feet and belly were exposed to the sun. Not again have I seen such strange and comical behavior from a hippo. He was the only hippo here and was king of the pool so I guess he though he could do what he wants.

    Favorite thing: The best time to go to ZIMBABWE is SEPT/OCT. Height of the dry season. Easy
    to see the wildlife. With the help of the ELEPHANTS and the DRY SEASON. This is
    what you get. It is a beautiful place here!
