Hungry Hungry Hippos at Maasai Mara, Kenya


The actual crossing location for the Great Migration is at the river where these hippos were just lounging.  The wildebeest follow the rain flow in the region and when things get scarce they cross the river in order to find more food and the rainfall of course.  Once thing that surprised me was the fact the hippos are terrified of the migration and actually get out of the way when the wildebeest cross the river.  It sounds similar to a stampede because there are hundreds and sometimes it seemed like thousands when they were crossing the river.
