What to look forward to, will we have a Grumeti River crossing this year?

HerdTracker update 06 Feb 2015

For visitors to the Serengeti to experience the Grumeti River crossings a few things need to align and would it be this year?  

You need an early move up the western Serengeti (Maswa) for the herds to reach the Grumeti River within the long rainy season (April May), you need good rain in the Lobo / Kleins Camp / Loliondo areas (Grumeti River catchment) for the river to have enough water to force crossings.

It seems that this might happen this year! These wonderful images from Lemala Camps reminds us of what is expected during the “crossing” season, you might have two opportunities this year, the Grumeti and Mara Rivers.  

Thanks for the pictures James and Veronica!
