Great Migration Live Update – 03 June 2019

By Asilia Africa News | 03 June 2019

Update fromKoshal Photography

Photographer Koshalencountered the herds crossing the Sand River heading towards theMasai Mara.

Despite the dangers of such river adventures, most herds cross safely, leaving theSerengeti, to ensure that the Masai Mara fills up with even more wildlife than usual. Not just the migratory vegetarians, of course – at this time of year it’s rare to see a big cat without either a fresh kill or a full belly!
