Céline Vdc witnessed a large herd of the wildebeest and zebra heading towards the Central Serengeti, Tanzania.

June and July are the most popular times to visit the Western Corridor and the Grumeti to see the Grumeti River crossings and the herds on the move, but September and October are also great months to see the remaining herds of zebra and wildebeest, along with other resident wildlife such as elephant, leopard and lion.

If you’re travelling during June and July, you’ll need to reserve lodging far in advance, as there aren’t many places to stay in the region!

Photographer Paul Joynson-Hicks captured Dada, Kito, Rembo and Kabibi along with their five cubs on a green season photographic safari, hosted at Governors || Moran Camp in April and May

The Green Season is possibly the best time to visit the Mara for a Big Cat safari! Prey is plentiful, weather is cooler. However, during the green season, you will enjoy most of these sightings along as there are fewer visitors in the Mara at this time of the year.

Big thunderstorm and heavy rainfall continue!

03 May 2019 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
