Every year in July, the Loita migration meets up with the larger great migratory herds from the south. The Mara Plains become a crowded mass of frolicking wildebeest, all competing for the lush green vegetation. 

Safari guide, Raphael Rotiken captured the Loita migration crossing the Osupukiai River from Ol Kinyei Conservancy heading to Naboisho.

The first smaller herds of wildebeest and zebra have crossed over into the Maasai Mara whilst the majority have made it to the Northern Serengeti gathering along the river getting ready for the great crossing into the Maasai Mara. Rush hour is upon us and we can't wait!

First crossing of the season with a lot of wildebeest at the Sand River. 

The Sand River is located within the Masai Mara Reserve on a secluded and picturesque site. The river sits on the migration route for the millions of wildebeest, zebra and Thompson's gazelle that move between Serengeti and Maasai Mara every year.
