It is our pleasure to introduce to you Babis, our resident hippo at Sanctuary Saadani River Lodge...

Set on the shore of the Wami River, Sanctuary Saadani River Lodge is renowed for great sightings of river wildlife, from colobus monkeys and crocodiles, to an array of rare birds. The biggest spectacle of all though are the hippos...and none so more as Babis.

Babis is often seen lazing on the shore of the Wami river, nibbling grass outside the lodge or treating himself to a mud bath in his homemade 'spa'!

Babis has even been known to fancy his chances as professional football player and can be seen having a the odd kick about out the back of the lodge...

We'll be back again soon with more Babis updates, stay tuned!
