Mara River Update

“The Penninsula”, part of the river known - one of the main crossing points during the Great Migration. The first photo was taken on the (19 May 2019), and the second photo was taken during a wildebeest crossing last year (25 August 2018).

The worry...level of the water. We are coming to an end of what is historically a wet period for the Maasai Mara region. There has been no seasonal rain this year and for a magnitude of reasons, the river is extremely low.

For those who thought they're late to book a river crossing safari! Good news, the herds might be late this year and you still have time to book your river crossing safari.
