The Great Migration Safari 2013: Day 7

Crossings, crossings and more crossings! Several thousand wildebeest and zebra made their river crossings today, giving us a spectacular front row seat to all the action – and there was a lot of action.  The crocodiles were out in full force killing 4 zebra, one of which set off an unbelievable feeding frenzy involving 2 hippos and around 40 seriously large crocs. A wildebeest was also caught by a crocodile, but against all odds, managed to drag himself and the croc to shallow water, and wrestle himself free.  Away from the crossings, a male lion, 3 cheetah, a female leopard with a baby impala kill and several hyaena were also seen.
