Great Migration Live Update – 24 September 2018

By Asilia Africa News | 24 September 2018

Live from the plains of the Northern Serengeti National Park. Hear from our safari guide Elia Edward! The sights and sounds of the Great Wildebeest Migration did not disappoint.

Safari guide Frank Gabriel was rewarded with the initial sight of more than 10,000 wildebeest and zebra moving south across the Mara River in the Serengeti.

It was in the late afternoon whenNelis Wolmarans captured a big herd crossing the crocodile-infested Mara River in the Northern Serengeti. Only one wildebeest was lost to a crocodile, a small price for the survival of thousands of other wildebeest.

When the great herds reach the banks of the Mara River, it doesn’t mean they will cross. Patience is the key in these situations and luck need to be on your side.
