Why we love August in the Masai Mara

The month of August is marked by spectacular sunrises. By August the herds of the wildebeest migration have normally reached the plains around our camp and they move around in large numbers grazing the grass down. There can be spectacular river crossings during August with large numbers of wildebeest taking the plunge to run the gauntlet of the crocodile infested waters to reach the other side. Elephants move about crossing the Mara River and frequently visiting our camps, there are often small babies amongst the herds. The Marsh Pride remain at the heart of their territory and the sightings of all the big cats remain good.
