The wildebeests have come back again!

Just three days after I posted on this blog about the exit of the wildebeest from Masai Mara, they made a complete turn around and in full swing came back a second time since July. Although from experience over the past years, I knew they will come back again considering that they left quite early. However, I could imagine it will be that quick.

They have come back, and now the plains around lookout hill, is teeming with thousands of wildebeest. We saw hundreds cross this afternoon over to the triangle and we expect heavy crossing over the next few days. there are also many headed north towards the Talek, where they will cross over heading to Topi plains and Musiara marsh.
So if you are headed this way soon, then it is a great opportunity.

The herds on the plain south west of look out hill overlooking Mara bridge.

The herds spread across the plains to  east.
