Great migration have crossed the Mara River into the Lamai Wedge

HerdTracker update 14 Aug 2019 by Alex Walker’s Serian

The great migration have crossed the Mara River into the Lamai Wedge. Lamai is a triangular-shaped watershed area just north of the Mara River!

Lamai’s freshwater and verdant grasslands serve as a critical refuge for the wildebeest and zebra during the dry season. In fact, the majority of the migration usually resides here from July until November. It’s one of East Africa’s best secrets that during the dry season, the secluded Lamai Triangle holds more of the migration then the more heavily touristy Masai Mara game reserve just to the north in Kenya.

The area has beautiful vast open plains, dotted with desert date trees, good shade during the day for any predators in the area.

The nearest accommodation to the herds: Lamai Serengeti, Masai Mara Safaris

Recommended safari: Tanzania Northern Circuit Luxury Safari
