Tourists on safari got up close and personal with a hippopotamus.

In the description of this viral video on YouTube, user David Jackson says his son Craig Clive Jackson captured the footage from a boat on the Chobe River during a safari in Kasane, Botswana.

“We were traveling on the Chobe River in Botswana, when we came across this hippo which appeared to want to charge the boat,” the user wrote. “The Hippo was closer to the boat than what it appears on the video.”

No word on whether it was a hungry hungry hippo.
