Migration in the Masai Mara

The Mara River is still flowing strongly and the Masai Mara is green and supporting huge herds of wildebeest and zebra. The herds are crossing the Mara River on a daily basis, often unsuccessfully. Carcass can be seen dragged down the fast flowing river. The herds are in the central Masai Mara and northern Serengeti. It looks like they will remain here for a few weeks more, at least until the grasslands turn dry and they start to get drawn south towards the Serengeti in search of better pastures. The best camps at this time are the camps around the Mara River or Talek River or northern Serengeti: Masai Mara Camps: Mara Intrepid Camp Governor's Camp Olonana Tented Camp Serengeti Camps: Klein's Camp Serengeti Under Canvas
