Moving along the marsh

03 Sep 2014 by Governors' Camp

Hi Carel - Yesterday morning at 8.00am some resident Wildebeest that started moving along the marsh yesterday crossed this morning. An estimated 5,000 crossed going East to West There was another resident crossing yesterday afternoon at 4.30pm and an estimated 1,000 animals crossed at the mortuary crossing point. The male Leopard of this area was in residence and took down 5 wildebeest in the spate of 30 minutes. He is a large leopard and is often seen in this area particularly at this time of year when the Wildebeest are crossing - keep well Patrick Governors Camp Collection image credit - John Njoroge
