Episode Information

A very special observation can be made on the banks of the Mara in Kenya. Huge herds annually cross the river during their migration, which poses many dangers for them. It's all about sticking together and getting a move on! The animals jump into the water and swim as fast as they can across the torrent. Zebras also join the wildebeest. But danger lurks in the water! The crocodiles have been waiting for this event for a long time. If the crossing animals are not careful, or lucky, they may be grabbed and pulled underwater. A fascinating, if often brutal natural phenomenon.
