The Loita herds are finally giving birth

It's the time of plenty on the conservancy and around the greater Mara. The Loita migration are still here, there have been some big rain around the area with around 50 mm in the past 24 hours. Many of the migrant birds have arrived including bee-eaters, harriers, steppe eagles and storks.

Finally the majority of the wildebeest cows are giving birth. There are little animals across many species scattered around the plains.

Action in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy

Each evening the herds move away from the river lines and bush areas onto the tops of the open plains for safely in numbers. In the mornings they are elsewhere, having been chased through the night by the multiple groups of lions and hyenas leaving fresh carcasses in their wake.

It is easy to find the action at first light. One follows the vultures as they glide one after the other at low level across the plains.

The second photo below was taken after sunset on the plain between Porini Lion camp and Mara Plains camp.

Thousands of wildebeest still in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy

Hi Carel,

As we hear reports of the migration having departed from the Mara National Reserve, some large tens of thousands of wildebeest are still up on the Olare Motorogi Conservancy.

Over the last hot and windy 24 hours these herds have begun lining up and heading south-west towards Rhino Ridge and Topi Plains. If the dry weather persists and they reach the Mara River there will be come big crossings in the week to come.

Richard Pye,
Olare Motorogi Conservancy
