Yesterday the Great Migration reached and began crossing the Talek river just half an hour south of Kenya’s Mara Plains Camp. Over the course of the day guests watched tens of thousands of wildebeest and pockets of zebra crossing the river heading north. It was an epic day to say the least; The Great Migration, cheetah, two lion hunts and kills at point blank range, a leopard with a cub on a fresh kill not to mention the huge variety of other wildlife scattered along the Mara Plains. Reports from this morning has the leading edge of the migration within 10 km of the camp. Watch this space!
