Latest Updates From The Migration

“The herds are now gathering near the Mara River ready for the annual river crossings. They can be seen from Bologonja all the way to Kicwa Tembo and along the Mara River. These annual crossings are quite challenging as some of them will not make it to the other side of the Masai Mara in Kenya. Numerous Crocodiles are lurking in wait mode, but the herds remain determined to cross the mara waters following the rain and looking for greener better pastures.”

Our trustworthy contributor Ranger Safaris, let us know that the Wildebeest Migration is continuing all along the Mara River. They started crossing from crossing number one up to crossing number eight yesterday. Video credits: Guide Mkenda from Northern Serengeti Kogatende.

These stunning images were taken yesterday around 9 am at the Mara river crossing. The location of the herds is just north of the Kenya/Tanzania border.

According to our Instagram contributor @megodoyle , around 1000 wildebeest were spotted crossing the river with no casualties seen. 

Thanks for the contribution Meghan!


Our Instagram contributor, Tyron Walsh, says that this particular herd moved from crossing 8 and crossed around crossing no 7 on the 19th of July.

According to Tyron, witnessing this great migration movement was a dream come true.


"The wildebeest migration is with us and our guests have witnessed some truly impressive crossings over the Mara River, since about the 19th of July.
These images (taken by Little Governors' Camp guide Moses Manduku), are of a crossing taking place at the Lookout area. The herds were heading from the Reserve into the Mara Triangle; due to high grass levels in both parts, their movement was slow even after crossing"
