Rubondo: Hippo Island

Having just returned from Rubondo Island in Lake Victoria the first of a couple of short posts. A longer written account will follow in the coming days.

Our location on Rubondo was the Lakeside Bandas from which we could here and see Hippos out in the waters. As dusk approached they ventured nearer and nearer the shoreline and after dark came on land to graze.

Our second day’s walking safari gave us a second glimpse of this amazing beast and a nearby waterbuck.

Today’s game drive allowed us one last viewing of the beast.
