October has been a fantastic month with lovely numbers of migratory animals still on the grasslands of the Grumeti Reserve. We have received very good rainfall over much of the reserve which has encouraged the already well-grazed grass to recover and provide green pasture yet again.
Thousands of migratory wildebeest and zebra have been observed as they traverse the reserve and we have been fortunate to witness some incredible river crossings along the Grumeti. With the Grumeti River flowing well this month, this has provided us with some incredible wildlife viewing just a stone’s throw from Faru Faru Lodge.
Concentrations of wildlife have been outstanding this October, without doubt an incredibly memorable month. The grasslands have been full of plains wildlife species, not only wildebeest and zebra but great herds of eland, journeys of giraffe, amazing Topi numbers and great buffalo herds. It has been nothing short of a privilege to be amongst such bustling wildlife activity.
