Footage captures hippo chasing boat

A safari guide in Zambia has captured the moment a hippo decided to chase his boat.

Hippos are easily provoked, and despite their bulk can move very quickly.

The guide in South Luangwa National Park said he had to speed up as the hippo launched itself out of the water.
