Patience paid off after waiting for 6 hours

21 Aug 2018 by Lucien Beaumont

Patience paid off for Lucien Beaumont who waited for 6 hours in the hopes of capturing a herd. Lucien was rewarded with the initial sight of more than 400 wildebeest crossing the Mara River.

Little did he know that the crossing would last almost an hour and as many as 4500 eventually made the crossing as the herds began to stream in from far and wide! Only one calf was lost to a crocodile, a small price for the survival of thousands of other wildebeest.
