Fatalities are possible

Photos courtesy of Dennie Clarke, at 11.30am a reasonable herd of wildebeest, an estimated 1,500 animals crossed from the Trans Mara to the Mara reserve at the Toyota site which is below Governors Private Camp. Here the wildebeest drop down 15 feet of river bank, if the river is low then there can be fatalities, this is a place on the river we have witnessed wildebeest cross before but not often. Yesterday morning a small herd of wildebeest, estimated 500, crossed at the main crossing point coming from the Trans Mara side. Patrick, Governors Camp
