Game Report: Governor’s Camp

September 12, 2012  By: Gretchen

It’s not all wildebeest this time of year in Kenya’s Masai Mara (though there sure are a lot of them).  This many ungulates means it’s a traveling buffet for predators.

This week it has been all about the river crossings as wildebeest and zebra took the plunge and crossed the Mara River in their thousands. There were dramatic scenes as crocodiles snatched a meal and wildebeest struggled to cross the mighty Mara River.

Crocs aren’t the only ones getting a meal, however.  In these times of plenty with abundant
prey around the big cats of the Mara have been busy raising the next generation and guests in the Mara have enjoyed regular sightings of Malaika the cheetah and her cub, as well as  the newest additions to the famous Marsh pride of lions.

It’s not too late to see the migration this year.  There are a few open tents in the Mara that will allow you to perhaps catch a river crossing, or visit Tanzania later in the year to see the migration in conjunction with other sites like Olduvai Gorge or the Ngorongoro Crater.  Just give us a call and we’ll take care of the planning.

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

Pick a Destination

Africa is enormous. There are endless things to see and do, and it can’t all be done in one trip. That said, we realize that many people believe that a trip to Africa is ‘once in a lifetime’ (though many more end up realizing once is not enough!). What do you most want to see? What experiences have you been dreaming of? Visit our destination pages to narrow your choices down, browse our safari types to get a sense of the activities and styles available, or talk with a Journey Specialist to hone in on the areas that will deliver the journey of your imagination.
