Trip report coming in due course, but in many years of visiting Africa, I have never seen anything to match this for a Hippo Horde.

 

I don't know how to actually embed a video, hence the link to YouTube - oops, it actually worked!

wow! That's just an incredible viewing. for me, it is as awesome as a wildebeest crossing and brings home the fact of the high density of hippos in luangwa river. I'm just surprised there weren't more fights. but I felt so nervous for the baby hippos .

Agree with @@Kitsafari, such a hippo event is just as good as any other "big ticket" sighting.

Amazing video; very impressive to see them not only so closely clustered together, but also moving so rapidly.

Holy hippo!

 

The Luangwa is supposed to have the most hippos anywhere. You proved it.
