The Great Migration Safari 2013: Day 3

We started off with a female leopard first thing in the morning – which is never a bad way to start the day, but the real highlight was our first crossings of the safari.  After a day and half of build up and anticipation, the wildebeest and zebras took the plunge and crossed the mighty Mara River.  There was the usual mix of panic, chaos and crocodiles, which all made for some fantastic photography!  A clan of 7 hyaenas also popped up for a late afternoon photo shoot, as well as 5 ground hornbills and 2 very playful baby giraffes.

Major sightings of the day:

  • Leopard
  • Hippo
  • Several crossings of wildebeest and zebra
  • Crocodiles
  • Elephants
  • 7 hyaenas
  • Buffalo
