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!

Wildies back in Ndutu, and a guest appearance

The calving started early this year in mid January after the rains came in big and beautiful over Christmas and the first half of January.  It then dried up quickly, and large herds moved to Kusini/Maswa and even further.

It has now started raining again and the wildebeest are pouring back into Ndutu in their thousands, our camp in Moru had wildebeest passing right through camp for 3 days solid - all are on the move towards Ndutu!  A lot of them are also coming back from the Kusini/Maswa area.  So Ndutu is pumping with Migration right now, and will be more so as they all arrive over the next days.

We have some fantastic pictures sent in by Nomad guide Ian Kiwelu of the herds around Big Marsh, and also a special migration supplement from Nomad guide Nathan Lasaru who had the good fortune to witness courting honey badgers...and THAT certainly doesn't happen every day!

Big herds, cats & dogs abound in Ndutu

Nomad guides Kennedy John, Ian Kiwelu and Nathan Lasaru have had a fantastic few days in Ndutu with lots of migration and cat action, and even today, 10 wild dogs.  They sent the following photos in.  Enjoy!

Dusty with a chance of wildebeest

Nomad guide Ian Kiwelu has been out for a full day today and has seen big herds heading towards Maswa. He says there’s no sign of rain and it’s pretty dusty around there at the moment. Despite reports of big herds around both Maswa and Makao, it seems there are also still some substantial herds around Ndutu.

Move over, wildebeest! The wild dogs are in town.

Amid much excitement yesterday morning, we received two messages from Nomad guides in the southern Serengeti eco-system reporting wild dog sightings.  These extraordinary and threatened animals are always such a treat to see and last season our guests enjoyed frequent sightings around Kuro Tarangire, so we're delighted to be still viewing them near our Serengeti and Loliondo mobiles.  Here are a few photos to tantalise you:

These pics are of a pack of 9 dogs on a kill in Ndutu, not far from our Serengeti Safari Camp, sent in yesterday by Nomad guide, Kennedy John.

And these images were taken on the plains of Loliondo by Nduara Loliond manager/guide Sammy Turoto.  These dogs are being monitored by the Tanzanian wildlife authorities which is why one wears a collar.

Rains on the plains

Big rains in the north over the last week and there have been lots of crossings from the Kenya side to the Tanzania side of the Mara River over the last weeks with a few smaller crossings still over the last few days. There are big herds on the plains near Bologonja which makes for beautiful photographs. There have also been some big storms in the southern parts of the Serengeti so some of the herds have made an appearance as far away as Seronera.
