Large herds of wildebeest near the Salt Lick

HerdTracker update 15 Aug 2014 by Governors’ Camp

Carel, just a summary: within the Musiara region, which includes Paradise Plains, Topi plains Rhino Ridge, Musiara plains and the Musiara Marsh there are areas that are quiet and other areas that hold small herds of wildebeest and zebra on the south fan of Rhino Ridge and dropping into Paradise plains, near the main crossing points on Topi flats there are large concentrations of topi due to the recent rains. A few zebra crossed this morning and small herds of an estimated 150 crossed yesterday late evening. The small herds of wildebeest left on the Paradise Plains will perhaps cross in the next 24 hours. The Masai conservation areas of the Mara North / Olare Orok Conservancies have small scattered herds of wildebeest and some zebra across most areas of the short grass plains, an estimated 2,000 crossed the Olare Orok river in the Mara North Conservancy yesterday morning and these we have heard crossed the Talek River this morning. Sources in the Trans Mara have said large herds of wildebeest are near the salt lick with the majority of the large herds a few kilometers into the Tanzanian border as far as the Sand River, some areas ere seen to have been burnt earlier in the season and with the recent rains in the last week here have induced the numbers of wildebeest to increase. The spearhead movement of Wildebeest that came through within the first week of June and the resident numbers have been seen to have crossed at the main crossing points on Paradise plains since 18th July and until 3rd August. These herds then moved into the Burrangat and Posee plains with some of them still in residence while others have moved towards the Tanzanian border. Patrick, Governors Camp
