Minutes later, we are again on our way along the more than 12 kilometers of riverbank that’s part of the hunting area. We observe fresh tracks from hippos, and our attention heightens. Despite its size, the hippo is lightning fast and dangerous when attacking, and the bush is very close here.
The animals should, however, be on the river itself at this time of the day, but for the sake of good reason, we stay quite alert. Shortly afterwards, we can see that the hippo tracks lead back to the river, and our attention is again focused on the bushbucks.
