Mara River crossings at Chinese Hill

HerdTracker update 04 Sep 2015 by Governors’ Camp

Hi Carel,

We witnessed a crossing this morning on the Mara River at Chinese Hill at 10.00 a.m which lasted for 15 minutes. An estimated 600 wildebeest crossed from West to East.

There are still good numbers of wildebeest on Paradise Plains, Rhino Ridge and south Bila Shaka. Since the recent light rains in the last 24 hours, many wildebeest that were on the east Musiara Plains and north Marsh have moved up north east into the Mara conservation areas.

There are also good numbers in the northern Bila Shaka and east Topi Plains. Guides reporting back from the Trans Mara conservancy have indicated huge numbers aligning the Oloololo escarpment, good grazing is still available.

Thanks,
Patrick
