The annual wildebeest migration takes place in the Masai Mara, Kenya and the Serengeti, Tanzania. It is known as the “Great Migration” and is one of the most iconic events in Africa. One of the largest obstacles the migrating animals face is the mighty Mara River.

Through a combination of telephoto video clips and wide-angle time-lapse sequences, we aim to illustrate the scale and drama of this incredible spectacle. We have never before seen a wildebeest river crossing recorded in this way… as far as we know, this could be the first time that time-lapse has been used to reveal the dynamics of a wildebeest river crossing.
