Lots of rain in the Masai Mara

There has been quite a lot of rain over the past few weeks. Grazing in the Masai Mara is still good and the Mara and Talek Rivers are flowing strongly. This makes the crossing of the Mara River even more treacherous for the crossing wildebeest and zebra.

The main herds are in the northern Masai Mara (and into the private reserves that border the Mara), but there are also large numbers of herds starting the migration south east into the northern Serengeti and Loliondo Game Controlled Area. The migrating herds are likely to start moving south soon while the resident herds with move north towards Loita where they will remain for the rest of the year.
