Yesterday afternoon along the river, tourist vehicles were waiting for hours where the wildebeest were massing on the Narok side of the river, hoping to see a crossing.
Further down the river I was closing tracks when a few wildebeest suddenly appeared in the thickets on the opposite side. Within about 20 minutes their number was so large that they started to come down the river bank and immediately a crossing was started.
I could see that some were not so fortunate when they fell down the steep ledge as I saw a few arise with broken legs. One was also caught by a crocodile, which you can see in the video.
It was an incredible sight and I could see wildebeest from the distant hills running to this crossing point. It was a very large crossing - several thousand in just over an hour.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
