Our lodge was located less that 50 meters from the banks of the Grumeti River. The hippos were noisy throughout the night. The make a variety of noises. After dark, armed escorts take you to and from your "tent".

We observed many Wilderbeast and Zebra making the river crossing, it's not as wide as the Mara river, but still worth the experience
