... and I decided to pick out one animal and watch it cross. I ended up rooting for it! Before long, there were three separate streams of animals crossing and they just kept coming. Toward the end there were a few times that a wildebeest hesitated but the pressure from the rest of the herd behind was too strong so he just jumped in. 32 minutes later, the remaining hundred or so wildebeest just didn't cross and they turned back.

We call this family day on the Serengetti for several reasons. First, we encountered a herd of 12 elephants, with several infants and one giant male that stood about 13 feet tall at the shoulders.

The males could be seen surrounding the group from a distance, while ...

The lake is not very deep but ...
... 11h00 which means that three days later we must be out of the park by 11h00. They work on 24 hour periods and even though we were spending the night, we paid for three days, and two nights camping at Seronera.We saw quite a bit but going in at Midday wasn't the ideal.We met up with a couple from Yzerfontein who had done a very similar trip to us. So good to compare experiences especially the crossing into Tanzania at ...
