Mumaizu and the Hippos
Age Range: 5 – 7 years
Mumaizu lives in Wechiau, a village in the Upper West Region of Ghana. His father, Agba Tungbani, is the head tour guide for the Wechiau Community Hippo Sanctuary. One day, Agba surprises Mumaizu with an invitation to see the hippos.
The Sanctuary, established in 1998, protects approximately 20 hippos along a 40-kilometre stretch of the Black Volta River.
