The Great Migration Updates (River of Life or River of Death):

The Wildebeests walked miles and miles from Tanzania through some big African Lion's pride and passes through many danger zones of natural predators i.e. Cheetahs, Leopard, Hyenas etc... finally reached the river (border between Kenya and Tanzania). The grass is indeed greener on the other side, for greener pasture, millions of wildebeest crossed the river....

In the struggle to cross the Mara River, many are drowned or swept away by strong currents.
The crossing attracts crocodiles who each year wait for the season's bounty.
Lions are frequently seen attacking the herds especially at night dragging down weaker individuals.
At the same time, packs of Hyena weave throughout the herds, singling out and separating the young and the weak.
By September the herds have reached their destination spreading out to graze across the Mara.

Indeed a spectacular experience to witness the annual great migration!
