A very interesting sighting

14 Jul 2014 by Lemala Camps

Morning Carel - we were near crossing 5 yesterday when a cloud of dust near the river bank attracted me. When I got there I was in time to see the last few wildebeest climbing out the bank from what was a large crossing (pic 259) There were still a few hundred left on the right bank. About 30 seconds later a whole group of younger wildebeest decided to return and we had a very interesting sighting of them hurtling back across the river. Then there was another lull and the remainder crossed onto the left bank - Veronica Lemala Camps
