Serengeti Migration

The Serengeti Migration Blog

Nomad Tanzania was one of the first companies to offer mobile safaris in the Serengeti for those intrepid travellers who wanted as guaranteed chance of being as close to the wildebeest migration as possible. Years later, we're still out there doing it every day. Our Nomad Guides, many of who have been with us since the very beginning, are in the midst of the Serengeti action every day, and here are some of their reports hot off the press!

Crissing and Crossing

It's that time of year when we struggle to find something new to write on our migration blog.  Basically there are plenty of herds up in the northern Serengeti busy criss-crossing the Mara River. Some guests in our Lamai Serengeti and Serengeti Safari Camps have witnessed major crossings.  Kenya has received quite a bit of rain, and Kogatende and Nyamalumbwa areas are green as well which means the beasts are spoilt for choice. There are also great cat sightings: cheetah, lion and leopard, and many of our guests also spot rhino, yesterday even from the balloon.

And although it's not the Serengeti, we thought we'd share that guests in Kuro Tarangire seem to be seeing a lot of wild dogs recently.  We even had wild dogs hunting impala right in camp, killing close to the hot water boiler which is mighty exciting!

Thank you to our guest, Vincent Ong, for this wonderful photo.

It’s wild up north

The western corridor emptied a couple of weeks back, and the herds are now well entrenched in the north.  We have seen river crossings every day, some of them very big herds moving northwards, crossing over the Mara and Sandriver, and the whole of Lamai and Kogatende areas are heaving with beasties.  There is still some Tanapa-controlled burning going on in patches around this area, but this will all turn to lovely green grass soon.

Wildies Central with a chance of North

Currently the herds are quite spread out.  There are good concentrations between Seronera and into the Western Corridor, but a lot of the big herds have already moved on, and are now on the way north, all spread out throughout from  Ikoma, Lobo, Nyamalumbwa and Kogatende areas, and some really fast ones have already crossed over into the Mara and there have been sightings of big crossings at the Talek River already.  There is still rain in Moru and the Western Corridor, so we expect  those in the central and western areas to stick around for a while, but the northern herds are well on their way.

An early move for the migration this year

The migration has moved to the western corridor quite early this year, concentrated along the Grumeti River and all the way up towards Kirawira.

Serengeti Balloons has opened their operation in Grumeti one week ahead of schedule to allow clients the best view over the herds as they are gathering on the plains around Musabi and Sabora.

We'll keep you up to speed with changes as they happen.

Latest update on the migration from our guides in western Serengeti

The wildebeest are concentrated in the central Serengeti at the moment, around Seronera and Moru areas, and some have slowly started moving towards the western corridor, with the first pioneers having reached as far as Kirawira already.

The big herds are still in Moru and the surrounding areas and around our Serengeti Safari Camp, with lots of predator action reported by our guides in the field!
