Both sides of the Mara River are important during this period

HerdTracker update 18 Sep 2019 by N A Hashim

Both sides of the Mara River are important during this period! Hashim witnessed the wildebeest crossing the Mara River to migrate from Serengeti to Masai Mara.

The great herds are still entering the Mara having to cross the mighty Mara River. Watching the river crossings can be spectacular, watching the wildebeest gather the courage to tackle the elements and enter the unknown is something very special. Witness the confusion, fright and panic, the crocodiles lunging and the cats ready to pounce from the bushes, makes for a sensational safari experience.

The nearest accommodation to the herds: Ashnil Mara Camp, Masai Mara Safari Holiday Holiday In Serengeti National Park Safaris

Recommended safari: Herdtracker Masai Mara Wildebeest Journey
