Lemala Mara Camp
If you're keeping tabs on Bill's Summer Safari of 2009 - you probably already know that he's in the Northern Serengeti in Tanzania. The place where he's staying is Lemala Mara Camp. Lemala Mara camp is so named due to its close proximity to the Mara River. The Mara river's claim to fame is for the wildebeest crossings during the great migration. Annually, wildebeest cross from one side to the other (repeatedly) to find the best grasses to dine on. The transition from one side of the river to the other is often a dangerous one for wildebeest as the Mara river is home to crocodiles.
