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!

Stuck in the mud

The last few weeks have seen some very heavy rains across the Serengeti, which have only added to our advuentures!  

Lots of fun and games for those of us making the most of some soggy safaris. We luckily had a fellow Nomad guide come to our rescue just ten minutes later.

The Grass is Greener…

It has been a super green season in Ndutu with the green grass drawing the migrating wildebeest back for grazing. The nutritious grassy plains are perfect for their calves, providing a plentiful supply of essential minerals needed for growing calves and lactating mothers. 

Lots of predators are also around, including this caracal kitten learning some hunting skills from her mother.

Dusty Ndutu

​Just a quick one from me to say Ndutu is now very dry.
Big change to how it was just a few weeks ago, and we are seeing a lot of the animals are making their way to waterholes and other available water sources.

Calving continued

Mid feb and the migration is now quite widely spread in Ndutu. Contrast to just a few weeks ago, its very dry after a sudden change in the rain patterns. Lots of the wildebeest and zebra are moving towards Kusini in southern Serengeti.  

We are pretty much in the peak of the calving season and its a great time to experience this special part of the migration, with lots of newborn wildebeest around. Some of the herds have been spotted going to the Maswa Game Reserve following the recent rain storm in the area.

But that all said, there is still a good number of wildebeest and zebra around the hidden valley where there are seasonal water pools can be found. 

Predators are plenty in Ndutu, moving between the woodland and the big marsh. And with other resident game around, elephants, buffaloes, giraffe, warthogs, and gazelles, there is plenty going on.

This fantastic photo was taken one of my recent guests, Barry Rochford, just 200 meters from our Serengeti Safari Camp.
