Animals Video

A huge herd of wildebeest had to escape from a river bed after spotting a pride of lions.

Tour guide Joshua Loonkushu was leading a group through the Masai Mara, Kenya, in November 2018 when the alarmed animals made their move.

In mesmeric movements, the herd, numbering up to 500 creatures, filter panicked through through a small gap on the bank.

Joshua said: “I was exhilarated.

“There were three lions, two adults and a teen.

“None of the wildebeest were caught and the following morning we found the whole lion pride feeding on a zebra.”
