An estimated 2000 migratory animals cross the Mara River

HerdTracker update 22 Aug 2015 by Governors’ Camp

Hi Carel,

There was a good crossing on the Mara River starting at 3:00 p.m at the main rocky crossing which is on Paradise Plains in the Mara Reserve. They crossed from west to east upstream of Serena Hill.

Zebra were also crossing though from east to west coming from Paradise Plains. The wildebeest crossed for nearly 30 minutes, it's estimated that 2000 animals crossed this afternoon.

One Zebra was eaten and two wildebeest were eaten.

Thanks,
Patrick
