[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Weighing in at over 1000kg, Jessica the hippopotamus considers herself a human, with dogs as her best friends. A movie star with her own fan club and web page and she loves Rooibos tea.
The hippo was a mere 16kg when she was found a few hours old on the banks of the Blyde River, near Hoedspruit, with her umbilical cord still attached. Frail and weak, she could not stand up. Now at over 10 years old she has become one of the country’s most renowned tame animals, however she is completely wild and free to come and go as she pleases. You’ll get the opportunity to stroke and feed Jessica, as well as put her to sleep with a nice back massage.
