There was a heavy crossing activity at the paradise crossing point yesterday as herds cross over to the west of the Mara River. These were mainly the herds that came from the south and crossed the Talek river north. They have been moving en masse across Paradise plain to the River and are now crossing over west. Many have been dying from predation by crocodiles and others from trampling in the stampede in the river. The past two days have been full of crossing and crocodile predation activities at both main crossing and cul de sac crossing points. the crossing startedd yesterday at around 12.30pm then stopped and again at both crossing points at around 4pm, and continued till just before dark. The previous day we had some animals crossing in the full moon night.
