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.


Elephant seal

Elephant Seals can hold their breath for up TWO HOURS! But how? Well, seals have more blood in their bodies than any other animal and, since oxygen is stored and carried around the body in blood, it allows them to hold their breath for an extra long time.
