The Loita migration is quite dormant. The resident Gnu migration hasn't moved into the Loita Hills for the past 10 years due to human settlement in the area.

The Gnus have resided in the northeast conservancies including the Mara North, Olare Orok, Lemek and the Naibosho.

The wildebeest cows have started calving with the small herds in the Lemek and Mara North conservancies. However, a large number are further east in the Naibosho and Olare conservancies.

On Friday evening, Patrick Reynolds heard a quite a large herd of males crossing the Ngiatiak River coming from the Olare Orok Conservancy into the southeastern reserve. Additionally, a small herd of mainly males, were coming from the North Mara Conservancy.

Things are stagnant in the Musiara gate with only a few Loita wildebeest males seen close to the Masai Conservancies.

The large herds are in the north east conservancies.

The resident Loita movement has been reserved to the short grass of the northern areas of the Mara Reserve.

To include the conservancies, the majority of wildebeest are in the Naboisho, Ol Kinyei and Olare Orok Conservancies with a few scattered herds (of which many are males) and will be seen in the northern reserve. 

Important note: These resident wildebeest no longer migrate into the Loita Hill areas due to human encroachment and settlement.
