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.Photos and game report courtesy Governor’s Camp
