Last year in the Masai Mara, I managed to see 1 (one) wildebeest swim the Mara River. So this time I was back on the Tanzanian side, hoping to get a better view of the Great Migration.
The wildebeest came through for me. The rains have been late, so wildebeest herds were crossing both ways across the Mara, hoping for greener grass on the other side.
I was happy to watch all wildebeest, all day, every day, but for some reason my guide kept wanting to take me off to see leopards, or lions, or black rhinos. “Yes, yes, that’s a very nice lion, but could we go and see some more wildebeest now?” dsc05208
