20,000 wildebeest crossed coming from the Trans Mara area towards Governors’ Il Moran

HerdTracker update 05 Aug 2016 by Governors’ Camp

Migration update from Governors' Camps

There was chaos at the crossing site. An estimated 20,000 wildebeest crossed coming from the Trans Mara area towards us. Three were taken by crocodile and two were trampled as they tried to scramble up the steep rocks on the Eastern bank.

Then out of nowhere lioness Jicho appeared on the far bank. She charged into the herds trying to take a wildebeest, three times she tried and on the final attempt was overrun by a mass of wildebeest, chaos ensued and she had to scramble up the bank to safety!
