Migration Monday Update - 18 August 2014Hi all, welcome to this weeks Wildebeest Migration update.

It has been an interesting week, with lots of needed rainfall both in the Maasai Mara National Reserve as well as the Northern Serengeti, Sayari Camp reported that they have received rain between 15mm and 35mm most evenings. All of this good rain definitely has an impact on the wildebeest movements and which way they are heading as there is good green grass on both sides of the river now. Kenya seems to have had even higher rainfall as reports came in that the Mara river is very high at the moment.

There has been a few herds crossing the Mara River heading North, these crossings happened at Makutano in front of Olakira Camp as well as crossing points number 7, 3 and 1. Four days ago in the Lamai Plains only a few herds were seen, however there was a very big group seen in the  Nyamalumbwa hills heading towards the Kuka hills and all the way down to the Sand River.

Rekero Camp guides have reported viewing crossings on their side in Kenya this week, with thousand of Wildebeest grazing around the Posee plains, the central Mara, and three days ago there was a nice crossing over the smaller Talek river in front of Rekero Camp.

Join us again next week for further updates on the great Wildebeest Migration!
