Although the big cats were out and about, the famous river crossings were the highlight in a day filled with amazing sightings. We saw three different crossings, and during one of these crossings a young zebra got caught by a huge crocodile. The crocodile quickly swam away with its prize, so we followed to see if there would be any feeding action to photograph. That turned out to be the right decision, because in no time at all, several monster crocodiles were involved in a feeding frenzy that needed to be seen to be believed. What a scene to witness and photograph!
Throughout the rest of the day, the cameras were kept busy by a host of other species, but a family of 5 cheetah were particularly special. We also managed to find the big male lion we saw on day 5, and he made for good images as well. The real surprise of this years Great Migration Safari, has been the number of hyenas we have seen. We saw another den site with 7 adults and 1 little baby, and continuous sightings of them throughout the day.
