Crossing the river back home.
In the early hours of the morning today, hundreds of wildebeests that were grazing on the Lamai plains some few days ago after leaving the Mara decided to cross the river back into the interior of Serengeti. A few zebras also accompanied them but as usual were so cautious. The crossing was dramatic in that there was a rocky island in the middle of the river which they headed straight for. Because their hooves were wet, they kept on sliding on the rocks and back into the waters. As a result, they disturbed the hippos that were in a nearby pool which grunted heavily while chasing them away. Clouds of dust were blowing up on the side of the river that they were entering in.
