A massive and huge crossing on the Masai Mara side!

HerdTracker update 20 Aug 2020 by Dikir Moses

A massive and huge crossing on the Masai Mara side.

August sees the mega-herd spreading out across the entire northern Serengeti and the Masai Mara.

Win, win. All the way through the month, river crossings should happen almost daily – it is all a case of waiting patiently for the wildebeest to decide to cross. You would be very unlucky for the wildebeest not to be surrounding the Mara River if you decide to go in August. On the flip side though, you would also be lucky to see a crossing, as not everyone does, as no matter how many hours are spent waiting with a herd by the river banks, they may simply not decide to cross over for hours!
