Over the last one week the mara game reserve has received a good amount of rainfall making the wildebeest move round in circles following the rain. The mega herds of gnus need alot of grass to sustain them and can travel for miles just to get to the fresh grass plains. While moving from one area to the other they can be seen walking in a long single line. This helps them scan the grassy plains better and escape being ambushed by lions.

Ranger Daniel and his two guests started their half day game-drive in the Masai mara game reserve with a quest to find the famous Cheetah with her four cubs. It took a while before they found her because the vast mara plains are still covered with grass. As Daniel was driving around in her home range he noticed some Thompson gazelle on high alert and knew there must be a predator they were keenly watching.
On arrival, it was the famous Cheetah and her four cubs feeding on a Thompson gazelle carcass. His guests found it very interesting to watch the cubs try get something to eat.

The wildebeest migration has been grazing the vast mara plains for over one and a half months. There still seems to be plenty of grass around to keep them busy for the next two months.
On a full-day game drive Peter and his guests went down to mara river where alot of gnus have been congregating for the last 10 days. After patiently waiting for a crossing it finally paid off and a few gnus crossed. After making it through to the other side of the river it proved difficult for them to climb because it was too steep. Alot of gnus get washed down stream due to strong current in the river and end up drowning.http://youtu.be/vcFtcx8pURk http://youtu.be/vcFtcx8pURk http://youtu.be/vcFtcx8pURk http://youtu.be/vcFtcx8pURk http://youtu.be/vcFtcx8pURk http://youtu.be/vcFtcx8pURk http://youtu.be/vcFtcx8pURk

Daniel left on full day game drive with two guests and the mission was to camp at the bank of Mara river for the entire day to chance a river crossing. Arriving at the river bank the wildbeest were scattered allover and didnt show any signs of crossing. After serving lunch under an acacia tree Daniel saw wildbeest move one by one and slowly build into a big herd. After some time they started running into two different crossing point and at the bank they seemed scared and had to wait for more than an hour before one carageous led the entire herd into a massive crossing.

The raging Mara river has already claimed its toll of the wildbeest. Two days ago the cross point near serena claimed a big number of the animals. the wildbeest got into the river on a steep edge and exit across was narrow. The animals swum to exhaustion and began drownig. The spot now is attracting the scavangers and stinking.
