The wildabeast would run back and forth as a herd on land, near close to the water, mingle around a bit, and eventually take the risk of making the crossing through the crocodile infested waters. There can be several hours between the time the wildabeasts make the crossing, so we were so lucky to catch it. Pictures: https://cobblogging.shutterfly.com/pict ...
