While the Hippo Lake and Beach area undergoes some maintenance, the Hippos are enjoying a change of scenery in their temporary home.
The Hippo Lake has been drained so that the excess mud can be removed and the fencing replaced. In order to do this the Hippos have been moved to an adjacent paddock which has lots of green grass and their very own personal ponds to wallow in.
Both Suzie and Nile have settled in well to their temporary home and love the green grass to munch on! The pair can often be seen exploring the paddock or lazing by their pond.
