About 50,000 wildebeest are spread out across the Grumeti concession from the Sasakwa Plains towards the Faru Faru area. However, large herds are moving towards the east of Ikorongo reserve along the Grumeti River. – Credit: Head guide, Mark Nicholson

30,000 wildebeest and zebra crossed the Sand River mere feet from where the guests were enjoying their bush breakfast. The unspoiled beauty and off the beaten track location of the lodge plays a big role in the sheer magic of staying in this area of the Masai Mara. – from Elewana Collection’s Sand River Masai Mara

Migratory herds were spotted moving across the vast grasslands of the Grumeti Reserve
