This startling footage shows the moment an excitable hippo decided to chase a safari guide's boat in Zambia.
In Zambia those who have seen the full video of this,tell the safari guides actually go to their areas where the families of hippos are and taunt them with the boat, its not good enough to just get close for a photo rather they want people to get excited at the expense of distressing the hippos, a hippo doesn't chase a boat for no reason. If Hippos are protecting their young, stay out the way. Lance Jones says they are dangerous - they upturn boats - kill alot of people. And yet they have this happy hippo reputation ???. One lady Madeline Magee recounts that the only moment I felt fear in Africa was out on a hippo lake in a very small boat. They can move fast. Oh, and then one went running by our cottage while I was on the little porch. My friend said it must have been a big dog. I called the front desk, and they sent out a man with a switch to chase it back to the lake.
