Wildebeest that were in the marshes have retreated

01 Dec 2014 by Ndutu Safari Lodge

Hi Carel,

I went for a scout around this morning. The large numbers of wildebeest that were here in the marshes last week seem to have retreated, and remaining is just small groups of wildies and zebra and larger groups of gazelle. It is still bone dry out round Two Trees.

There is very little grass growing and still enormous groups of cattle in Long Gully and Marsh areas. Guests who have been here for the last 6 days have had amazing luck with cheetah - recording 21 different ones, many with small cubs.

The lions also are recovering some of the pre-dry season condition, thanks to the few wildebeest and zebra here.

All the best,
Ainslie
