Big herds along the Sand River

HerdTracker update 12 Aug 2015 by The Safari Collection

Hi Carel

Today, there are big herds along the Sand River. The entire area from Sala’s down to Elewana along the Sand River has big herds coming from the south which are joining the main herds alaready in the Mara around the Keekerok and Roan Hills areas. 

There have been big crossings on the Sand River heading north all morning and still lots of small scattered herds through the main Mara reserve. The plains in front of our mess are heaving once again!

Yesterday, the migration was very condensed in the Mara again and the big herds are along Keekerok and along the Sand River between Keekerok Lodge and Roan Hills. Lots and lots of gnus and really packed together in some places.

 They don’t really seem to be heading in any particular direction but have moved southwards in last few days.

Mark,
General Manager,
Sala's Camp
