Singita Grumeti

Grumeti | October 2011

The short rains have started and the entire concession has greened up tremendously, areas that had burnt and others that were grazed extensively by the wildebeest migration a few months ago are fully recovered. The entire landscape looks like an emerald green tapestry, with mosaics of colour dotted across it, created by flowers and animals. The new grass has attracted zebra and topi in their thousands, little Thompson gazelle with their constantly moving tails, buffalo and elephant. Along with the rain and the new growth there is birth, zebra foals, topi and buffalo calves, Thompson’s and impala lambs. Trees that were dormant through the dry season have sprouted new leaves, wild flowers are blooming throughout the concession and frogs can be heard calling everywhere.
