Kubu River Hippos
Step into a wild African wetland at Werribee Open Range Zoo’s Kubu River Hippos experience.
Spanning more than three hectares, Kubu River Hippos is a hippo paradise. Home to five hippos – Primrose, Brindabella, Tulip, Lotus and young Pansy – the exhibit features deep pools, sandy beaches, mud wallows and grassy meadows.
From the boardwalk, you can view the hippos from almost every angle, or you can see them up close from the semi-submerged barge, the Kubu Queen. There’s even an opportunity to experience Australia’s only drive-through hippo river on the safari tour.
