If you like hippos, and plenty of them, this is a good place to while away time watching them graze, sleep, and fight with each other on occasion!

The hippo pool is located along a small river within Serengeti Park. There is great viewing available from above and there were probably about 60 hippos in the water. Great spot to get photos.

As the same says, there are hippos. However, those are lazy during the day and mostly stay inside the water.
