    heaviest and most gormless looking creatures in Africa. I cannot recall ever
    seeing hippo before, even in a zoo and therefore this was another animal that
    surprised me with how enormous they actually are. Driving along the plains we
    continued to see many zebra, wildebeest, Thompsons gazelle, Grants gazelle,
    jackal, hyena, ostrich as well as some warthog. Coming up to the centre of the
    crater we found a large stretch of track with ...

Near to the narrow low opening into the hut his wife sat in the darkness with a shaft of sunlight lighting up the bead work she was doing - it’s sold to the tourists (like us) who visit the village.
