Just heading back to the camp and there they where a large group of elephant drinking at the waterhole with the sun setting and the moon raising on the blue sky.

Water was splashing everywhere as the large hippo’s jumped into the Mara river on this late afternoon.
Everywhere you look they are there, thousand of wildebeest grazing and slowly building up to pass the Mara river during the great migration.
Wildebeest are nervous animals and they will start moving the moment they sense any danger.
Elephants on the open savannah in the Mara conservancy Kenya. Approaching us straight ahead with a beautiful vista behind.
This young Zebra was obviously a very lucky the night before as its missing tail looked like it had just been bitten off. There was also heavy marks of a lions claws on the buttocks. It will be difficult to keep the flies away from now on.
A enormous Crocodile kills juvenile Wildebeest/Gnu in the Mara river by crushing the head in its giant jaws. The small Wildebeest was crossing the Mara rive in the annual migration and got slightly away from its mother while swimming to reach the other side. One of the enormous crocodiles swung into action from the bank, swam to the middle of the river and snapped the Wildebeest. Loud cries was coming from the Wildebeest but after 5 minutes the fight was over and it was being dragged lifeless down the river by the crocodile.
