Jessica the Hippo

Situated 15km outside of Hoedspruit, Jessica the Hippo is a must see for every visitor to the area. Visitors can enjoy feeding, touching and playing with Jessica, as well as learn about her story. A very rare chance to get up close and personal with one of Africa’s most dangerous animals.

Speak to your hosts when booking, or when at Maninghi Lodge, and we'll arrange the bookings for you.
