Crossing the river back home.
In the early hours of the morning today, hundreds of wildebeests that were grazing on the Lamai plains some few days ago after leaving the Mara decided to cross the river back into the interior of Serengeti. A few zebras also accompanied them but as usual were so cautious. The crossing was dramatic in that there was a rocky island in the middle of the river which they headed straight for. Because their hooves were wet, they kept on sliding on the rocks and back into the waters. As a result, they disturbed the hippos that were in a nearby pool which grunted heavily while chasing them away. Clouds of dust were blowing up on the side of the river that they were entering in.

Two rhinos on the sand river plains.
Our guests who were on game drive near the sand river plains were rewarded by a sighting of two black rhinos which had just crossed over the dry sand river from the masai mara. They were a mother and an older calf of about three years of age. They had not been spotted for almost two months in their bushland habitat along the river and therefore it was a good plus for our guests who were really longing to see one.

The king taking life easy.
On an early morning game drive, we found a beautiful male lion sitting on a grassy termite mound in a very relaxed way. He had a full stomach after having had a breakfast of some wildebeest in the thickets nearby and so was in a happy mood. He never moved much but he would from time to time switch his sight from one direction to the other. The guests thought that he was just taking life easy.

Initially it was the Elephants, then the wildebeests and now the zebras are visiting the camp. This week, big herds of zebras have made the vicinity of the camp their habitat and grazing ground. Individually and in small groups they graze around the tents in the mornings and spend most of the afternoons in the shady trees and shrubs around. The guests who are in the camp have enjoyed seeing these grazing animals right infront of their tents. This herd of zebras are part of the migrating animals which move alongside the wildebeests on their way back to the southern parts of Serengeti.

Serengeti Bushtops is a migration zone.
It is another week that the wildebeests on their return journey have stayed around the camp in their thousands. It is their "playground" as they move back and forth in long columns like a colony of ants foraging for food. The rolling hills and valleys around the camp are a spectacle to watch as they are full of these animals on their long journey southwards. At times they would get scared and take off for a little while then settle down again to graze. As a result of these animals, we have had lots of lions roaring every night as they become contented after feasting on these animals. Our guests have been having the best opportunity to view these animals from the verandah of their tents. It is no doubt that the Serengeti bushtops is a migration zone.&feature=share&list=UUnY15uyJcrkUWFhPZf76BEA
