The migration continues to march into the mara through the sand river area and mostly this year the herds are entering into the Mara near the roan hill down to where the sand river meets the mara. The herds cross in big groups and can take upto two hours nonstop. Daniel and his four guests witnessed a herd that violently run away from the river banks but couldnt exactly establish the cause.

When Daniel and his four guests left the camp the main mission was to see the crossing at the sand river. Daniel informed the guests that besides the animals being a long the river it has ever been difficult to predict the movement, just like the weather but nature may do a favour so lets cross the fingers and the journey started. The drive towars the river had interesting sighting and the scenic sand river was admired by the guests.
Arriving at the river, they saw wildbeest and zebras on both sides of the river but continued down along to one famous crossing point only to find the animals running and running towards the shallow river. Some all over sudden stopped to drink and others continued to the other side. At some stage something scared the herd and were running across maddly as if there was a predator chasing, but Daniel informed that they are always keen along the river because its a predators stalking areas and any minor movement will create a commotion.

Finally the great migration has arrived into the Maasai Mara Game Reserve! This is a frentic time when dominant bulls attempt to round up and mate with as many females as they possibly can.The herds will spend much of the ensuing three months around the Mara and its adjoining areas in search of fresh grazing, before the first hints of the rain back in the south begin to beckon.
