Last but not least it is the fact that the river hides one of the most ruthless predators: the Nile crocodile.
On one hand the river has many meanders and the herds cross it from different points several times a year; on the other, since the herds remain in Northern Serengeti and the Masai Mara for 3 or 4 months, they keep on moving in their wanderings and they often encounter the Mara on their way.
