Stephen G, October 2016
We opted for the late afternoon cruise as we heard the hippos were more active as evening comes. We were not disappointed. There were hundreds of hippos in the water, even lots of baby one! The boat was respectful and kept its distance but got close enough for us to see the animals. Fascinating experience, so glad we went. There weren’t very many people on the boat so we had the entire upper/outside level to ourselves.
