Update from Mariagel
May is the wettest month in the Serengeti. Roads can be slippery and tricky to navigate!
The herds gather in May as the calves legs should have become fully operational by now. They also feed less frequently, so bigger distances can be covered each day.
More hope for the Marsh Pride Legacy: Pamoja (Yaya’s daughter) have been mating with Koshoke (one of the six Marsh Boys), just a few days ago.
However, Dada, Kito and Kabibi along with their cubs, were captured resting close to the Governors’ Camp. The cubs are thriving, becoming more and more confident – playing fights with each other and simply enjoying all the wonders of the Masai Mara.
Update from Sanel
May is a great time for action photography as the herds move quickly to the Serengeti’s Western Corridor.
Sanel captured a large herd of the great wildebeest migration from the Western Serengeti heading towards the Eastern Serengeti. However, a small herd is still roaming the Central Serengeti.
