The hippo is among the most dangerous animals in the world due to its highly aggressive and unpredictable nature. 

Breakfast with Martin Bester chatted to JC Japhta, the Operations Manager at Dunkeld Country Estate in Dullstroom, about the animal. 

JC spotted the hippo in Dullstroom at the dam, as well as in the estate.
