I finally returned to the Mara yesterday, after spending a few days in Lake Bogoria to photograph the masses of Lesser Flamingos that have gathered there for the breeding season.
Today I drove around the Mara to see where the animals are. Most wildebeests and zebras moved west into Trans-mara. Some herds are still concentrated north of Ol Keju Rongai, while some headed north past the Musiara Marsh and the border of the reserve. Small groups of zebras and wildebeests are crossing the Mara river daily at the Paradise Crossing in both directions, as shown here in the picture. The local pride of lions crossed the Talek River to the east from its usual territory, attracted by the first herds of migrants. It is now raining all over the Mara, with scattered evening showers.
