The Mayhem Season!


The mayhem occurs annually when the wildebeest are on their trek in search of greener pastures. Moving across the vast Serengeti/Mara plains they have to cross numerous rivers.

This photograph was taken when they were crossing from the Mara Triangle back into the reserve and was a very civilised crossing. They chose a very easy place to drop down the banks and also there were no crocodiles waiting for them in the waters. There are other instances where thousands of them die both from the drop and the waiting crocodiles.
