Wildlife and sightings for July has been great once again, the migration has started and there has been Wildebeest all around us, came into Kenya bit earlier than most were expecting the first crossing was on 8th July and since then many big crossings of up to 2000 animals have been seen crossing the mara river, Have had reports that there are still more to come which is fantastic. Let’s hope they continue to cross and give us all the experience that we often dream about viewing.
Last month the River pride of lions were around Serian and the sighting were fantastic, this month we had Zwardi (stunning female leopard) hanging around the camp giving guests great picture opportunities.

A Cheli and Peacock pride Female lioness called Lilly (www.livingwithlions.org ) has some young cubs, they were see for the first time at the end of July – William ( Head Serian guide) was the first to sight the little ones – fingers crossed that they survive and grown into strong healthy lions.

Still on the move
Had a rare sighting of a side stripped Jackal in the Reserve this month as well, it was Jacob who sighted the jackal – definitely a good month for William and his team of Serian guides.

The weather has seemed to friendly to us this month, had a few showers at the beginning otherwise its been dry and warm during the day – the grass is still plentiful in the triangle and reserve so the wildebeest have plenty to feed on.
