Large crossing at the main crossing point

07 Aug 2014 by Governors' Camp

Hi Carel - There was a large crossing at the main crossing point at paradise plains. An estimated 10,000 were seen crossing with one yearling wildebeest being taken by a crocodile. These wildebeest were going from east to west and were seen coming from the Olkiombo area so would have crossed at the Talek, they were also seen coming down from the Masai conservation areas. With pockets of rainfall these wildebeest are moving back and forth - Patrick Reynolds, Governors Il Moran Camp Manager
