      ... privilege of hearing, then seeing, two Vervet Monkeys playing/fighting and even knocking each other off the deck. Then, as I was getting dried off from my shower, I saw a hippo walk out in front of our cabin and stop to graze. It's not super common to see hippos out of water so I shouted to Erika to get out of the shower and come see too! Then we went to breakfast and the time came to say goodbye to Thuto. We really bonded with him over the last ten days ...
