A number of rain storms throughout September appear to have further disrupted the migration, there were large concentrations of wildebeest along the Tanzanian border, but the never moved North of Ol Are (the salt springs).
The dry spell in July and August ended with three weeks of scattered thunderstorms and showers, this rain led to a mass exodus of wildebeest out of the Triangle and into the Narok side of the Mara and by the 20th there was hardly a wildebeest to be seen in the Triangle
The month started with several days of rain and overcast days. There was a heavy thunderstorm on the 8th, which was then followed by two weeks of heavy and widespread rain that first brought in the wildebeest and then sent them South again.
We had heavy rain for the first two weeks of September. Thereafter we had scattered thunderstorms – we understand that this is expected to be an El Ninõ year and that the country will be in for exceptional rains between October and December.
