Migration Monday Update - 17 Feb 2014 Word from our Ubuntu Camp is that they have had heavy rain the last couple of days, not good for our vehicles but great for the Wildebeest and more nutritious grass. The area around Ubuntu is teaming with wildebeest, 70% are with their calves while others are still carrying them.
