About the Show
Zambia’s Luangwa River hippos are living the easy life - or so it seems. But appearances can be deceptive, as their lives fluctuate between the serenity of sunbathing and the terrible brutality of dominance and aggression. It's a struggle that puts a young hippo in more danger of being trampled by herd members than being hunted by the neighbouring crocodiles. Crocodiles and hippos maintain a symbiotic truce, while male hippo clashes can have tragic consequences. In Hippo Supremacy, this reality is captured as a mother risks her safety to protect her struggling baby as it grows up in the danger-filled waters of the Luangwa River.
