The many wildebeest pushed in from the East, crossing the great Grumeti River and spreading out onto the central grasslands. Excited, we followed them. The columns were many thousands of metres long and we had decided that we would try and make our way to the front of the columns for a great photographic opportunity.
One fine morning, I was watching the very hungry Mkuyu Pride lying beneath a balanites tree in wait for the wildebeest. There was a troop of baboons not too far away from the pride and as they neared the lions a single lioness jumped into hunting mode. She began stalking the baboons… However, the baboons, sharp as ever, spotted the lioness and they bolted for cover. A single male baboon broke away and scrambled up into a rain tree just in the nick of time.
