Another spectacular crossing in the Mara River on the Northern Serengeti side

HerdTracker update 25 Aug 2020 by Steven James

Another spectacular crossing in the Mara River on the Northern Serengeti side!

August is one of the very best times to be in the Serengeti because this is the peak season for the mighty Mara River crossings in the north. At the beginning of August, as the main herds approach, you can be in for some huge crossings. Like with July, the first crossings of the season can be explosive, with wildebeest falling left right and centre, trampling each other or being taken down by the hungry waiting Mara River crocs.

The nearest accommodation to the herds: Lemala Kuria Hills Lodge, Serengeti National Park Safaris

Recommended safari: Tarangire Game Viewing and River Crossings in the Serengeti

Monthly Herdtracker Migration Safaris

Join our HerdTracker guides on a scheduled HerdTracker Migration Safari. Stay at the right place, at the right time as our expert HerdTracker guides gets you close to nature's greatest spectable.
