2017-05-14: Masai Mara

 

The wildlife in the Masai Mara was just as amazing as it looks in all the nature programs that I watch.  Here is a selection of images from my time there.

The chaos of a river crossing.

Waiting somewhat patiently for the chance to move up the steep slope.

As more an more animals moved up the banks, the ones that had slipped and fallen were stepped on.

migration-3

A sad group of wildebeest too weak or injured to get up the banks.  We left shortly after this, so I don;t know if any of them found the strength to continue, or if they ended up as food for the crocs.
