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!

Big herds in Kogatende and crossings a-plenty

There have been rains on both sides of the Mara River in the northern Serengeti, so the migration is sticking around, and are crossing both north and south at the moment. While we have big herds in the Kogatende area and around Lamai Serengeti, there are also many in Kenya along the Mara River. We are enjoying fantastic cat sightings in Kogatende at the moment!

Crossing frenzy in northern Serengeti

After their very early arrival in the North, the migration is now well spread out across the Northern Serengeti with plenty of animals in the Mara River and Sand River areas, a few towards Kichwa Tembo Rd and again big herds on the Bologonja side and on the Kogatende side. Some great crossings are being seen by our guides and guests on the Mara River, but also on the Sand River side.  It's a good time to be at Lamai Serengeti & Serengeti Safari Camp.

Nomad Guides, Ken and Cornelius are now regularly contributing their pics and safari gems so keep in the loop on our Facebook & Twitter (#Kennedysnaps and #Corneliusfacts).

Fast and furious: beasts on the move

The beasts are still running fast....

Currently Olobaye is pretty empty, but still and always good game in the nearby Moru area.  There are big concentrations on the Musabi plains and all along the Grumeti River.

But nonetheless some of them can’t wait and have already reached Lobo, Togoro Plains and even near Bolagonja so we are definitely on for an early year. Let’s see when the first ones reach Lamai Serengeti!

A fresh new season in the Serengeti

Our guides are back out in the field after the low season and so the firsthand updates are coming in thick and fast.

It seems that the beasties are moving up early this year. There are big herds between Seronera, Retima Hippo Pool, Banagi area and on the Musabi plains, but some are already moving towards Ikoma, Mbuzi Mawe and towards the North.  There are still big herds of zebra and also smaller wildebeest groups in the Moru area and the plains south of Seronera and towards Hidden Valley.

We're looking forward to a vibrant dry season in the Serengeti!

A big male lion is having breakfast 150m away

During the dry spell of the last one or two weeks, the animals were quite dispersed and had moved towards the Serengeti and Kusini area, and the triangle towards Naabi Hill.  However, big rains in the last two days has seen the usual dramatic turnaround.  The herds will probably start to move back more onto the Ngorongoro Conservation Area side now and search for the fresh short grass.  There are already a lot of little wildie babies in evidence which makes for great viewing.
While I am writing this, the guests of Serengeti Safari Camp are sitting in the mess tent  watching a big male lion having his wildebeest breakfast not more than 150m away.... It's still amazing that we have the opportunity to witness such things...
The rain has wreaked a small amount of havoc on the roads, and those wanting to cross small Olduvai had to wait for a few hours while the water subsided yesterday.  The bridge over the main arm of the gorge meant there were no issues there.  Today, after two days of heavy rain, some of the roads in the south are challenging, and in true safari style, the odd vehicle is getting stuck...all part of the fun!
