Huge herd crosses the Mara river at crossing no 5!

HerdTracker update 17 Aug 2023 by Lemala Camps and Lodges

This herd was spotted crossing the Mara river at crossing no 5. A fantastic sighting of a chaotic river crossing! Crossing no 5 is one of the more difficult crossing points for the wildebeest due to the rocks and stronger current which can be seen in the video.

This great video was taken by @boscomosha of @lemalacampslodges on the 17th of August 2023.

The nearest accommodation to the herds: Lemala Mara Mobile Tented Camp, Safari Holidays In Serengeti National Park

Recommended safari: Follow the Migration in Tanzania
