The Great Migration Safari 2012: Day 2

Our first full day in the Mara was one to remember!  Our goal for the day was to witness and photograph the famous wildebeest crossings, and we did this in abundance.  A total of 9 different crossings, with the largest numbering upward of 15 000 animals!  Absolute madness!  In between all this action, 2 hyaenas entertained us by chasing vultures off their kill, and appearances by 4 different prides of lions kept the shutters clicking!

Major sightings of the day:

  • 9 river crossings
  • 4 prides of lions
  • 2 hyaenas chasing vultures of their kill
  • Bat-eared foxes
  • Elephants
  • Herds of buffalo
  • Giraffe
