We snorkelled for just over an hour and we could see most people were back in the boat so we headed back but swam a bit longer while waiting. All around it was good snorkelling the only down side was my waterproof camera started to take on water in the lens part which was never happened before.

Later from the porch of our Banda we heard splashing. One of the young hippos had crossed and was out of the water just below our cottage. As soon as we turned on our flashlights it quickly swam back across to its ...
