Mara river crossing

More than 1,5 million wildebeest (or gnu’s) migrate in an enormous loop every year in Tanzania and Kenia, following the seasonal rains, hence green grass to eat.
This migration is recognized as one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World. We have witnessed parts of the migration during our earlier journeys, but never watched one of the famous river crossings. This year we had the luck to witness two crossings at the Mara river in Tanzania. These crossings are very dangerous for the animals. They can get hurt by jumping in and out the water, or can be attacked by the many crocodiles in the river.
