  1. Late night last night so just opened my emails, delighted to be runner up & though I would have loved to see the hippos I will love to have another adoption to add to my current friend Maxie. Love to all at Turgwe & thanks for the great raffle! Have a great day.

    Dear Karen,
    I just opened my e mails this morning and couldn’t believe it when I saw that I had one the raffle.
    I rang my sister and got her up and asked her if she wanted to come with me, so we are both really looking forward to meeting all of you and the Hippos next year….What a Christmas Present this is!

    Much love to you all,
    Karen MacKay xx

      Enjoy yourselves karen…it is a wonderful place to be….a trip of a lifetime !!!

    • Hi Karen Mackay will be wonderful to introduce you to the hippos as well as your sister. You have my email to give me an idea later of dates that will be best for you between May and end of September. Best time to see the hippos on land is June, July and August. Those are our winter months but still hot during the day but June and July need jerseys at nighttime as our house is open plan and it can be very cold at night. Wait to hear from you and congratulations.
