The hippo pool is part of the Simba River. With its large collection of water birds present and the lake shimmering in the background, it is a lovely spot to pause for a while.
As you watch hippos you will most likely hear them grunting and might see them spreading their dung with vigorous wagging movements of their short, strong tails. You may notice scars on the backs of the males. These are inflicted by teeth of other males during fights. It is safe to watch the hippos from the bank as they bask in the water, but they should be avoided if found on land. Hippos are usually placid creatures but can become very aggressive if an intruder gets between them and their pool in Lake Manyara.
