The Migration is Here!

About 3 days ago, the wildebeest migration began crossing the Sand River from Tanzania into Kenya. It's incredible how quickly the landscape is transformed by vast views of thousands of wildebeest spread out across the savanna. The herd is largely congregated near the Mara River, close to the Tanzanian border, suggesting they may start crossing the river soon. With water levels fairly high, especially for this time of year due to the recent, unseasonal rains, it could make for some pretty exciting, and dangerous, crossings.
