10,000 wildebeest cross the Mara River – heading towards Bila Shaka

HerdTracker update 11 Aug 2016 by Governors’ Camp

There was a large crossing yesterday morning of around 10,000 Wildebeest and a few Zebra.

The evening before there was a huge herd that crossed the airstrip at 5.30 pm, they had come from the east marsh areas and were headed straight to the south bank of the Bila Shaka and joined up with an equally large herd, some of these had crossed that night although it was much of this herd that crossed the Mara river yesterday morning. There are still a few left on Paradise Plains and these may well cross today.
