The migration

Lamai · October 2018

Head Guide

The Mara River Tented Camp is a great place to be in the month of October, with the migration being in full swing in the area. Crossings were seen on a daily basis with the biggest being around 100 000 animals which crossed at Number 3 crossing point.

The plains of the Lamai Wedge were covered with mega herds of wildebeest, zebra, eland and Thomson’s gazelles. Each and every day we experienced dramatic wildebeest crossings. With these crossings we witnessed crocodiles hunting the wildebeest as they attempted to cross the Mara River. Most of the crossing are happening just downstream of the camp, from the northern bank to the southern bank.
