Migration Update: Governor’s Camp

August 15, 2012  By: Gretchen

This migration update comes to us from our friends at Kenya’s Governor’s Camp.

In the last few days there have been some very good crossings on the Mara River. Yesterday many zebra and wildebeest crossed from east to the west at the main crossing points along the River. There are many wildebeest spread out across the plains surrounding our camps. Huge lines of wildebeest were seen this morning filing over Rhino Ridge and towards Paradise Plains.

The lions of the area are doing well; there are two cubs up on Paradise Plains which are the same age as the new Marsh Pride cubs and the two large males are back on Paradise Plains, no doubt attracted by the large herds of wildebeest and zebra. And the male lion Morani has been mating with one of the young Marsh Pride females. Yesterday evening Siena another of the Marsh Pride females managed to tree a young male leopard at Lake Nakuru and the leopard was kept high up in a Teclea tree for most of the day, it had moved out of the tree by this morning.

People flying on the Governors’ Balloon have been enjoying spectacular views of the herds of the great migration.
