Jessica, the World Famous Hippo

Say ‘hello’ a very special creature named Jessica. Jessica is an 23-year old female Hippopotamus (Hippopotamus Amphibius) who lives near Hoedspruit, South Africa.

What makes Jessica so special and unique, is the fact that she’s a wild animal that interacts with humans in a rather different way than nature has intended.


If you’re in the area, be sure to meet and feed Jessica the hippo!

Big Swing & Zipline at Graskop

The Big Swing is a MUST for adrenaline junkies! Freefall for 70 metres (20 storeys) and reach 140km/h speed in 3 seconds! 

Unlike bungee jumping, participants are strapped in an upright position in a full safety harness, allowing them to see the spectacular scenery of the gorge, waterfall and forest. 

If the big swing is too daring for you, why not opt for the Zipline. You’ll get 360 degree views while you fly across the gorge on a high-wire Zipline.
