Amazing sighting. I have noticed before that hippos seem to come to the rescue of other animals in distress. Love Egyptian geese, they are always busy doing something. Interesting to watch them.

Guy that was amazing! I love how the hippos came in to investigate the goings on 🙂 Yes it is rather scary how they go at each other & this time both came off better than some I’m sure. Thank you

Interesting blog Guy. Can imagine you all sitting in the vehicle holding your breath and awaiting the outcome of this tussle. Good that the hippos helped out and the geese will live to fight another battle someday. Thank you.

Wow, how exciting! We have never seen the Egyptian geese do that! Thanks for sharing!

Yikes! The ones in Cape Town are not that vicious!

Wow, what a great sighting!! You never know what you’ll find around every corner at Londolozi!
