The wildlife in the Masai Mara was just as amazing as it looks in all the nature programs that I watch.  Here is a selection of images from my time there.

The chaos of a river crossing.

Waiting somewhat patiently for the chance to move up the steep slope.
migration-2
As more an more animals moved up the banks, the ones that had slipped and fallen were stepped on.
migration-3
A sad group of wildebeest too weak or injured to get up the banks.  We left shortly after this, so I don;t know if any of them found the strength to continue, or if they ended up as food for the crocs.
