A crossing frenzy in the N.Serengeti

After their very early arrival in the North, the migration is now well spread out across the Northern Serengeti with plenty of animals in the Mara River and Sand River areas, a few towards Kichwa Tembo Rd and again big herds on the Bologonja side and on the Kogatende side. Some great crossings are being seen by our guides and guests on the Mara River, but also on the Sand River side.  It's a good time to be at Lamai Serengeti & Serengeti Safari Camp.

Close to the plains, we saw lion spoor. The lion must have walked early morning. Looking at the plains, there were elands, wildebeest and zeb…

The Mara Welcomes the Migration

It's late June and the weather’s super. Early mornings are cool and become hotter followed with clouds building up late afternoon. There’s rain on the edges of the reserve. The Talek and Olare Orok rivers are high, but still manageable to cross. The soft and dew-drenched grass is very palatable for the herbivores. They are not so thirst-driven to the dangerous spots at the rivers and luggas where the predators usually wait for what we call ‘meals on wheels’. The rains have also filled up the…
