This week I had the honour of taking two British ladies on a Tented Safari to Pilanesberg National Park. The one lady is a Tourist Guide and the other organises triathlons for a living.
My guests’ number one request throughout the safari was to see hippos. And hippos we saw!
On day one we stopped at Ratlhogo Hide, which was almost completely dry a couple of weeks ago. Now it is ruled by a hippo.

We spent close to an hour at the hide, just watching the terrapins climbing up the hippo’s back and then sliding off again when he decided to turn.

He even yawned at us, showing off his huge tusks and massive gape.

An early morning drive on day two enabled us to spot this hippo at Malatse Dam when he returned from his evening graze.
Pilanesberg National Park also dished up a few good elephant sightings which included a big bull and a breading herd on two occasions.
It was a 3 Day Tented Pilanesberg Safari packed with game viewing and excitement.
