Wildebeest migration into the Masai Mara is the single most popular wildlife spectacle in Kenya. in the river crossings, wildebeest jump into waters full of the dreaded Nile crocodiles and surging currents.
Put in the swift current, eminent stampedes and jaw snapping crocodiles are a guaranteed recipe for mass genocide at the river crossings. The Mara River is awash with bloated mass of wildebeest carcass that crocodiles feast on for days on end.
Of the over one million wildebeest in the migration, 250,000 die from drowning, stampede and crocodiles every year.
