Out on the plains, the Loita wildebeest calving is in full swing!

When the moment arrives it happens quickly. The mother looking mildly surprised at the wet bundle which has suddenly appeared. Within minutes the baby is standing on wobbly pins, searching for the first feed of nourishing colostrum to gain strength to be able to keep up with its mother. These magic moments were captured by safari guide Empap Meshack Sayialel.

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.
