Wildebeest Action witnessed in the Masai Mara!

In the Masai Mara, action has been witnessed at the key crossing point! This Zebra had previously been attacked while crossing the river, yet it managed to pass with an open belly and intestines hanging out on the other side. The Hyena ultimately joined the party and began attacking, but the crocodiles reappeared and reclaimed their prey. Amazing action photos!

The resident Loita wildebeest are spread out in the northeast conservancies

Resident Loita wildebeest are spread out in the northeast conservancies and no longer extend to the Loita Hills. The grass levels are palatable for the young calves in the northeast conservancies.

There are no signs of the Serengeti wildebeest yet (still early days). They are more than likely still moving through the Serengeti, Naabi Hill and Maswa areas. The entire ecosystem has been regenerated to quite an extent due to heavy rainfalls from November 2019 until mid-February 2020.

Kaburu Crossing point, Fig Tree, Lookout and the main crossing points in the Masai Mara

Wildebeest crossing at Kaburu Crossing point in the Masai Mara!

The Kaburu Crossing point is known to be one of the toughest section for the wildebeest to cross due to the congestion of animals that accumulates (on both sides) and many of them fall back down the slopes and into the river where there is a high number crocodile lurking.

The slopes are also quite rocky and offer no support – trapping their legs and causing serious (and often fatal) injuries. Once the herds cross the river, the final obstacle at Kaburu is the number of lions laying low, ready to ambush them as they try to regain their strength on the other side. The wildebeest are so exhausted and startled from the chaos of the crossing that they make for an easy catch and it is not uncommon to witness multiple kills taking place here.

Governor’s Camp guests witnessed a crossing right in front of the camp

Governor’s Camp guests witnessed a crossing right in front of the camp.

The camp’s setting is magical! So much so that almost a century ago it was reserved, exclusively, for Kenya’s colonial Governors. Governors’ Camp nestles in the forest along the winding banks of the Mara River, it’s watered teeming with bird-life, hippo and crocodile, in the heart of Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve.

We have always said that there is no ‘best time’ to be on safari

We have always said that there is no ‘best time’ to be on safari!

Governors Il Moran Camp guests this week were in for a real treat with massive herds of wildebeest pouring into the Masai Mara Reserve from the Serengeti. As with any natural phenomenon, nobody can predict their movement and they’ve caught us all a little off guard – but the savanna grasslands are lush and a feast is ready for them.

Let HerdTracker help you to track the movement of the migratory herds, allowing you to book a migration safari in order to experience the great migration first-hand. We’ve compiled a safari that will be perfect for you to explore the migration on: http://bit.ly/2KR4RTr
