Entertaining Hippo
by: Jenny

I find hippos very entertaining and fun to photograph and Malatse dam gives you the opportunity to get close to the hippos. Very nice shot Anton, it's not easy getting a good photo like that.

"It's 768 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the Park...camp information.
