Hippo House

Must see


This house offers a remarkable view of hippos in their natural element – under water, that is. There are two hippo swimming pools in the compound: one outside and one inside, both with a frontal glass wall.

Thanks to these pools, visitors can appreciate the gracefulness with which hippos move under water.

The Hippo House is temporarily closed. The hippos can be found in the outdoor enclosure on warm days.
