Jessica the Hippo
Jessica is a ten year old female hippopotamus who lives near Hoedspruit. What make her so special and unique is that she is a wild animal that interacts with humans in ways other than what nature intended. It is believed that hippos are some of the most dangerous animals in Africa and many are said to have attacked and killed people who invade their space. Jessica is not like that, she displays characteristics that may lead one to believe she thinks she is human, or that the observers are just other hippos.
A visit to her home, near Lowveld Escape, is a must.
