Best Times to Watch

The hippo pool watering hole cam in is on 24 hours a day. Anytime is a great time to watch!

What animals might I see?

This watering hole isn’t called the “hippo pool” for no reason!. One of the biggest reasons is you can usually see the resident pod of hippos sunning themselves on the banks of the river or wallowing in the refreshing water. You’ll also see Grevy’s zebras, gazelles, crocodiles, leopards, and many other species.

Mpala Research Centre, Central Kenya, Africa

Established 1989, the Mpala Research Centre (MRC) receives hundreds of students, educators, and scientists from around the globe each year, conducting research on everything from parasites to elephants.

The unique set up of Mpala allows for researchers to use the land as a ‘living laboratory’. As a result they can conduct experiments and answer pressing questions on conservation and wildlife. Mpala hosts multiple educational outreach programs in order to tackle issues of human-wildlife conflict. Therefore, this way they ensure that both conservation and human-livelihood goals are met.
