Safari guide Sammy Kaleku captured the biggest crossing from Mara Triangle towards the Lookout Hill!

As with August and September, the herds are yet again in a pretty identical position in the northern Serengeti areas of Kogatende and Lamai, and in the Masai Mara. There is a chance in late October that the light rains will come a bit early and therefore push the herds south, however, this takes a long time as there are so many of them! The chances are even if you are visiting the north in late October, that a good few of the herds will still be lingering in the north.

Sammy Kaleku captured a very big crossing from the Mara Triangle heading towards the Lookout in southern Masai Mara

Lookout Crossing lies directly beneath Lookout Hill, aptly called because it’s one of the highest points in the Mara!

August is your best month to see the dramatic Mara River crossings in the Serengeti or Masai Mara!

The wildebeest herds will continue their search for lush, greener grass and by doing so, attempt to cross the dangerous, crocodile-infested water of the Mara River.

The Great Migration continues to cross the Sand River on the Masai Mara side. 

The Sand River Masai Mara offers guests a secluded position from which to observe the splendours of Kenya. Game drives and hot-air balloon safaris provide spectacular and year-round Big 5 game viewing. Those who visit between July and November will witness one of the greatest spectacles in Africa: the Great Migration.

The great wildebeest migration has finally arrived in the Sand River!!

They were spotted crossing the Sand River heading into the Mara Reserve. Located on the banks of a river from which it has taken its name, Sand River Masai Mara is located within the Masai Mara National Reserve, close to the Tanzanian border.

With an authentic safari experience, superb cuisine, a well-stocked cellar, sparkling pool, hot-air ballooning and your private viewing deck, Sand River Masai Mara offers a winning combination.
