Wildebeest Jump onto the Herd Swimming the Mara River to Cross into Kenya during the Great Migration

Wildebeest Jump onto the Herd Swimming the Mara River to Cross into Kenya during the Great Migration

In their panic to stay with the herd, wildebeest leap off the shore into the Mara River during the Great Migration.
Danger lies ahead and they are apprehensive. This is the area where crocs and hippos lay wait under the water. Even the water current can kill the young. Once animals make it across, they are in mortal danger of being trampled or breaking bones as they try to get to the top of the bank. Those that make it out face a final hurdle--lions stalk the edge looking to pick off the young, weak or injured.
