River crossings at Kogatende starts in July as the mega herd settles into the area. Between July to October, game viewing is at its best with river crossings pretty much guaranteed every day. There is no distinct movement as the herds tend to cross back and forth over the river, following the rains and subsequent fresh grasses.
