Hippos are nearing the "endangered list" - Apparantly Zambia has eradicated 95% of their hippos in the last few years

The Kruger National park is a definite if you're coming to South Africa, other than that [IE: Tanzania, Zimbabwe, etc,] i'm not sure - Probably the best experience would bethe OkavangeSwamps in Botswana - DO A LOT OF INVESTIGATION BEFORE COMING
