Migration constantly crossing the Mara and Talek rivers

The migration is in full swing with wildebeest and zebra as far as the eye can see. The Mara Triangle is overflowing with migrating herds. The herds have been criss-crossing the Mara River and Talek River over the past few weeks. They will often cross the river multiple times in one day looking for the best grazing. Rain on one side of the river sees a major movement of the herds in the expectation of better grazing.
The most dramatic crossings have been seen at Paradise Crossing, and generally between Fig Tree Camp and Intrepids Camp. Crocodiles and lions have been very active making easy kills on a daily basis.
There are large herds around Talek Gate, Lookout Hill, Central Plains, Meta Plains and Olmisigiyio.
