Irresponsible...

I believe this may be the most irresponsible thing by a safari guide that I have ever seen.  The problem here is not the depth of water...but the velocity.  I'm actually speechless.  I can't understand how a safari guide would actually attempt to cross that river.

I'm not sure which tributary of the Mara this river is...but it is likely one of the smaller ones feeding the Talek.  The tributaries to the Talek are very flashy.  They don't stay high for very long.  If the guide had only waited for a few hours, it would have dropped.  But he didn't...





A few hours away and a few days ago, 10 died while attempting to cross a flooded crossing - http://allafrica.com/stories/201111300032.html.
