Photographer Koshal encountered the herds crossing the Sand River heading towards the Masai Mara

HerdTracker update 31 May 2019 by Koshal Photography

Photographer Koshal encountered the herds crossing the Sand River heading towards the Masai Mara.

Despite the dangers of such river adventures, most herds cross safely, leaving the Serengeti, to ensure that the Masai Mara fills up with even more wildlife than usual. Not just the migratory vegetarians, of course – at this time of year it’s rare to see a big cat without either a fresh kill or a full belly!

We expect the crossings to continue for many weeks, so it’s not too late to join us and witness nature’s greatest show for yourself. Or book yourself in for next year. After all, it’s a show that never really ends!

The nearest accommodation to the herds: Elewana Sand River Masai Mara, Masai Mara Vacations

Recommended safari: Herdtracker Masai Mara Wildebeest Journey

Monthly Herdtracker Migration Safaris

Join our HerdTracker guides on a scheduled HerdTracker Migration Safari. Stay at the right place, at the right time as our expert HerdTracker guides gets you close to nature's greatest spectable.
