A lone hippopotamus that was found wandering near the Rondevlei section of False Bay Nature Reserve last year has finally found a home.

Staff found the hippo, named Bambi, in November after it was rejected by the hippo herd at False Bay Nature Reserve.

Bambi was forced to live alone in a pan at the waste water treatment works in Strandfontein.

However, the City of Cape Town’s biodiversity experts were concerned that she was not settling well in such close proximity to human activity.

Finally, Bambi has found an alternative, long-term home.
