Hi all and welcome once again to our Monday Wildebeest migration update from the Northern Serengeti and the Maasai Mara National Reserve.
Resident guide Onesmus Irungu from Rekero Camp
reported two days ago that there are still good crossings happening on the Sand River between Tanzania and Kenya, and that most of the Wildebeest are heading further North into the Maasai Mara. Mara River crossings have been happening at Look-Out Area with Wildebeest crossing from the Reserve to Mara Triangle. Huge herds are at Sand River, Posee Plains, Olkeju Rongai Plains all the way to Rekero. Rains have also started again so we expect the Gnus to move around.
In Northern Serengeti this past week it has been very slow with crossings as a lot of the Wildebeest are in the Maasai Mara area at the moment, Sayari Camp
has reported that they saw a very big herd in the Kinyagaga area of the Lamai Plains which is on the Kenya/Tanzania border and one big crossing was seen at crossing point number 4, with the Wildebeest also heading North. Olakira Camp
have managed to see one big crossing at number 7 crossing point heading South into Tanzania.
Please tune in again next Monday for more updates on the Migration!
