Zambia is very popular with tourists because of the wide range of brilliant safari animals you can see. But the kind of animals that you see on safari are, by their very nature, often quite dangerous. And few are as dangerous as the hippopotamus. Zambia’s Lake Kariba is an expanse of water you want to be wary on, because it’s home to quite a few hippos. They’re big and they mean business… You’re about to see what one looks like when he senses a boat nearby and isn’t happy about it!

The world’s third largest land mammal, these creatures can grow up to weighing half a tonne. And also – they can close their nostrils when submerged under water!
