Migration News

2013_10_18

Latest reports reaching our office from the Maasai Mara and Mara Bush Camp reveal that our guests continue to enjoy amazing game sightings daily. The great wildebeest /animal migration is far from being over. Just recently, large herds of Wildebeests crossed the Talek River in a spectacular manner.

Overall, large herds of Wildebeest still occupy a large part of the Mara plains and lookout area with the predators taking advantage and making easy kills. This phenomenon provides breathtaking moments, good for a keen photographer and nature enthusiast. Those who have been following the migration trend for a long time reveal that this year’s migration is by far the most spectacular one witnessed in the last 15 years; it is also expected to last longer.

The predators are not left behind either. A pride of 12 Lions have recently found their way to the plains surrounding Mara Bush Camp. The three youthful Cheetahs commonly known for climbing the roofs of Safari vehicles while spotting their prey, have relocated to an area near Mara Bush Camp. On the other side of look out area, a Cheetah with her 4 cubs is often spotted.

The weather report promises nice sunny days ahead after the rains witnessed daily in the last few months subsided. This is the ideal time for game viewing and photography. The beautiful sunrise light is what every photographer is looking for. Mara Bush Camp still has some space available in October/ November for those who might decide last minute to travel.
