Jessica the Hippo

Nomads Den says

Jessica the Hippo

Jessica the Hippo is an activity in Hoedspruit where you can get close to a hippo and also feed it. Hippo’s are one of the most dangerous mammals on earth, so getting close to one is quite a rare feat. The owners tell you about the history of Jessica and guide you through the experience.

At Nomads Den we don’t actively recommend a visit to Jessica the Hippo as commercial animal interactions come with risks to both visitors as to the animal. Hoedspruit offers a lot of ways to experience hippo’s. Like the Blyde Dam Boat Tour, so we rather recommend those activities.
