Trip Report Migration of the wildebeest and their crossing of the Mara river

Jump to last reply

I went for 3 weeks to the Masai Mara to observe the wildebeest migration and the breathtaking spectacle of the crossing of the Mara river. First, I would like emphasise that apart from the actual crossing, It is a period of plenty for most animals, and there is this sense of excitement and increase in activity across the whole of the Masai Mara. It is therefore a good time to observe the predators of the plains, the lions, cheetahs, and hyenas as well as the other big five game animals.

In regard to the witnessing the interaction between the crocodiles and the wildebeest during the actual crossings of the Mara river, observing the actual crocodile attack is in large part a roll of the dice. Come a few days early, and the herds will be far from the river. Come a few days late and the crocodiles will have had their fill. So timing is everything. To help with the planning and to provide some background information of the crossings I have written an illustrated report at http://www.artphototravel.net/africa/wildebeest-migration-kenya/ Including images and maps.
