We hiked to the edge of the river, over a wire bridge that my four year old is still talking about
before getting on a canoe to get to the other side of the river where our equipment waited.
"Agressive" hippos meant that we had to walk a little ways downstream before starting our 4 km journey. They don't call it Hippo Pools for nothing…
We started our journey just next to the weir. Here Caryn and Kyle sit beside our guides.
The weather and scenery could not have been better.
The perfect-sized rapids gave us a little exercise and Jonas a bit of extra excitement.
It's hard to find "family friendly" in Africa. We have found oodles of places to go and things to do that we cannot get into with Jonas. Hippo Pools was a fun adventure for all of the personalities in tow!
