Pumba finally found his family.
While on safari in South Africa we met a woman who told us she could put an album together of all the animals’ butts she’d managed to capture on film over the years. In just a few weeks we managed to rack up quick an array of butt photos ourselves but none are quite so cool as this one here.
We often like to think of warthogs as dirty and ugly animals and, while there might be some truth to that, they also form incredibly strong family units. One driver told us of a time where a baby warthog was attacked and killed by a predator (I don’t remember which one, sorry) and the father warthog became so enraged that he took out his aggression on the safari jeep…and caused some serious damage! Compare that to a male hippo who is known for eating his own young and you can see how unique the warthog really is.
IF YOU GO: South Africa is a great place to do a safari on a budget. There are lots of flights to South Africa from all over the world and once there you can rent a car and drive your own safari.
