Walk through a tropical garden to the Hippo Hide – a thatched lapa overlooking the beautiful hippo pools. It is just a short stroll away from the pygmy hippo enclosures.

This open air venue can accommodate up to 50 seated guests and is perfect for entertaining VIP guests with a stylish braai, while enjoying the nocturnal activities of our hippos beneath the waterfall.



Weavers build nests over ponds using blades of grass. The male builds the nest, then shows off by making noise and hanging upside down from the nest. If his display succeeds, a female will inspect the nest and occupy it
