Suffice it to say, the danger involved as well as choosing where you will go hunting hippos is best left to experienced hunters who can get their money’s worth out of the hunt. Are you interested in taking a trip to some far-off land where you can actually still hunt hippos? Here are some of the best places on earth.

First – Don’t Look at Egypt!

There is a lot of lore surrounding hippos originating in ancient Egypt. The word hippopotamus is derived from the Greek word for ‘river horse’ and that is just what they resemble. Hippos were feared in Egypt, that is true, but they were often also revered as a god. At one time, hippos were abundant in Egypt but have now become extinct there. Hippos were destroying crops along the only fertile land on the shore of the River Nile, so they were systematically eradicated from the country. Don’t lose heart, however, because they still flourish in other parts of the continent.

Four African Countries for Excellent Hippo Hunting

While hippos have become extinct in Egypt, you really could go hippo hunting in South Africa, but the cost of doing so might be higher than on other parts of the continent. The cost alone keeps South Africa out of the running for best places, but if you have the financial resources, this country offers hippos to hunt along with better restaurants and tourist spots. The four best countries to hunt for hippos in Africa are:

  • Zimbabwe
  • Zambia
  • Mozambique
  • Botswana

You may find hippos in other African countries with a waterline, but these are known to be the four best nations for hunting the ‘river horse.’
