Photo of hippos in South Africa in South Africa

These hippos were living in the river near our accommodation at the Kruger National Park. Although I could get fairly close to them, capturing them was difficult because they spent most of their time underwater and only occasionally popped more than an eye above the water's surface. It probably took an hour to get this photo, as a result. We were told that the hippopotamus is the most dangerous animal in South Africa.
