Update from Alex Walker’s Serian

Mega Mara River crossings begin!

Safari guideMicheal Thomas witnessed a huge crossing at Crossing point number 9 from the Kogatende to the Lamai Wedge.

Lamai Wedge is one of the most beautiful areas in theNorthern Serengeti, this area is found in-between theMasaai Maraover the Kenyan border and theMara River.


Update from Robyn

Augustis your best month to see the dramaticMara River crossingsin theSerengetiorMasai Mara!

The herds in August are up in the north, crossing the Mara River between Kogatende and the Lamai Wedge. This is the peak time to see the river crossings because even if the wildebeest are late, they will have reached the Kogatende area by this time.

You would be very unlucky for the wildebeest not to be surrounding the Mara River if you decide to go in August. On the flip side, you would also be lucky to see a crossing, as not everyone does – no matter how many hours are spent waiting with a herd by the river banks, they may simply not decide to cross over for hours!

Update from Serengeti Nomad

This morning safari guideNathan Losaru Mollel captured a big herd crossing the crocodile-infestedMara Riverin theNorthern Serengeti. Only one wildebeest was lost to a crocodile, a small price for the survival of thousands of other wildebeest.
