The adventurer and Dr Grant Hopcraft continue to follow the four collared female wildebeest. The pair witness the first stampeding attempt at a river crossing, before a second attempt occurs at the Mara's most dangerous stretch, famed for its brutal current. However, crocodiles prowl this strait in huge numbers and not all the creatures make it. Ben also sees the destruction crop farmers contend with due to the animals' movement, then joins the Mara Elephant project whose workers are trying to find a solution for this human-animal conflict.
