This was a most curious scene at the waterhole in Hwange National Park. Could it be that the young hippo is wanting to play with the crocodile? At first the young hippo kept diving under a loose plastic pipe. He seemed to enjoy it floating across his back over and over again. Then he spotted the crocodile swimming across the waterhole not too far away. Being the only young hippo in the waterhole he must have thought, “Oh cool! Someone to play with me!” Take a look at what happened next… Young hippo and croc playing a game of tag?
Enjoy our playlist of curious wild African Animal and Bird behaviors we see at waterholes, our camp and along our travels. Some of it is darn right funny. Some not so much, rather a bit sad. Either way wildlife is fascinating, unpredictable and terribly vulnerable. Our quest is to help people saving wildlife… Care to join us? Choose a video from our playlist, or watch them all.
