Into the Masai Mara, past Sala’s Camp and what a day it has been

13 Jul 2015 by The Safari Collection

Hi Carel,

For the past few days, huge herds of wildbeest and zebra have been massing outside Sala’s Camp on the border and today... in they came!! 

We had a steady six hour crossing of the Sand River next to the camp and there are never ending lines of wildebeest stretching back into Tanzania that just keep on coming. Lots have now crossed into the southern Masai Mara and this is the place to be.

The Sala’s Pride and their cubs are have a great time and we’re seeing some really great stuff. Pictures attached of the crossing and the view from our mess!
