Location: Okavango Delta, Botswana
Hippos kill more people than any other animal in Africa and locals are sensibly wary of them. I’d taken a trip into the Okavango Delta in late January while it was still quite wet. I had camped on one of the islands in the delta and transportation was in a small, narrow punt.
This image was taken as we returned to our pickup point on the mainland. The lady driving my boat had an unsettling habit of driving into things. The boat was quite low in the water I was worried about my camera gear getting a good dunking.
As we rounded the final corner (after a very long forty minutes) we saw a group of hippos in the water close to the pick-up point. They were watching what was going on and I was very happy that they didn’t get any closer to us. This image is the view I had as we passed them.
