The sheer scale of this event is both awesome and unimaginable -- 1,500,000 wildebeest joined by hundreds of thousands of zebras, gazelle, elephants, and their predators. The most crucial time is the crossing of the Mara River, with its swirling currents as well as crocodiles and hippopotamuses lying in wait. Thousands are killed in their attempt to reach the opposite bank, trampled and suffocated in their relentless drive to survive.Photographer Carlo Marl has followed these animals for a decade and watched them stampeding relentlessly from one horizon to another in vast unbroken columns.

His photographs portray the dynamism and courage of the herds, their rhythms, their conquest of new spaces and their struggle to live and perpetuate themselves. Set within the context of the whole of African wildlife, these images, accompanied by Harvey Crozes authoritative text, stretch beyond the migration itself and provide a glimpse into a journey without end, a perpetual circle of passage.A safari through the pages of this memorable book is the next best thing to being there.
