An amazing  hippo combat at the hippo-hide we watched yesterday when we were at the hippo-hide with the guests.

We watched the same two bulls engaging into a fight two days ago when we were building the hippo-hide extension &  they fought for over ten minutes.  Unfortunately that time I didn’t have my camera with me to capture any picture of the fight.

However, two days later we went back to the hide & I had my camera with me this time, luckily they fought again & we managed to get some good  photos.

We were so lucky to see this because it doesn’t happen very often.  I guess we will see more of the hippos fighting this year because of the low level of water in the river due to the limited rains we’ve had.
