Mara River Crossing

Early afternoon, a large herd of migrating Western White-beardedWildebeest massed on the banks of the Mara River in the Masai Mara NationalPark, Kenya. After milling about for about four hours, they finally decided totake the plunge into the fast flowing Mara River. They were clearly concernedabout the danger of crocodiles, but none were in evidence as beast after beastdived into the river so as to cross to the greener pastures on the other side.
