Giant hippo chases speedboat, launches out of water just feet from tourists

MALAWI, Zambi - Tourists on a safari in the Kafue National Park in Zambia got a little taste of what it's like to be stalked by a massive predator.

A huge hippo started chasing their speedboat, swimming so quickly it created its own wake.

Suddenly the hippo launched out of the water and lunged at the boat - just feet from a man on board.

The video was uploaded to Facebook by Michael Varndell who is with a tour company called Malawian Style - Safari and Adventure Holidays.
