Happy Hippo Family Swimming in the Okavango Delta

While on a helicopter trip in the Okavango Delta I saw a hippo family swimming in the clear waters. The flood season reaches its peak in June. I have been there in May and there was abundant water and the animals were really enjoying it. After many trips to Sub Saharan Africa I can say I haven't seen more happy animals than in the Okavango Delta and the Chobe river. Water is life!
