By Anwynn Louw | 16 September 2019

Update from real Masai Safari Tours

Thousands of wildebeest and zebra relaxing atSand RiverinKenya, close toSerengeti National Parkborder.

A panicked wildebeest sets off a massive stampede.



Update from Gnu Migration Camp

The Great Wildebeest migration was captured crossing point number 3 fromNorthtoSouth Serengeti.

Once the herds arrive in the north, they do not simply head straight for theMasai Marathen head south, but they linger crisscrossing over back and forth through theMara River– it is not a single mass movement, but more a chaotic gathering which can mean river crossings happen daily fromJulyall the way through until lateOctober.

Update from Kearsleys Travel and Tours

Crossings continue fromNorthtoSouthern Serengeti. A huge herd moves back to theSerengetifrom Mara Triangle.

Update from Alex Walker’s Serian

Safari guide Jacupa Martinez saw a huge herd crossingMakutano Junctionbetween 7 and 8 from Lamai to Kogatende.

Makutano Under Canvas Campit is the closest camp to theMara riverwhere each year enormous columns ofwildebeest cross the river, negotiating the jaws of the hungry crocodiles, in order to get to the pastures on the other side in what could be considered the climax of theGreat Migration.
