There are still big herds crossing and recrossing the Mara river in the northern Serengeti and there has been a lot of rain around Nyamalumbwa and Kogatende which provides them with good grazing. Our guides have seen rhinos with calves and quite a few cheetah chasing down young wildebeest.

From Lamai Serengeti: we've had a lot of wildebeest around, our guests are seeing river crossings all the time. Because of the rain we've had here, it seems the big herds are all heading down and across the river again. We've even heard reports of herds near Ikoma.
From Nomad guide Chediel: I've seen big herds from Nyamalumbwa to Kogatende, criss-crossing over the sand river.

Look carefully at the background, this is on the Kogatende airstrip...

There is plenty of water in the Mara River, and with this lots of carcasses of drowned wildebeest, not such a good sight. There are still lots of wildebeest crossing over in both directions, but rising river levels because of the rain has meant they can't always cross.
It's very green and beautiful up in the northern Serengeti, around Kogatende and there has been good rains around Lobo and in northern Loliondo.
