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!

Latest from the Serengeti

Just back in from safari. The migration is very fragmented with herds still in the Western Corridor, sizeable herds being seen in Lobo, Togoro Plains and around Mbuzi Mawe.  There are also reports of trailblazing herds stretching from Kleins and up into Bologonja.

The afternoons have been rainy most days with spectacular thunderstorms at times. This unseasonable weather, for our dry season, explains why the migration is so broken up.

Cheers, Richard Knocker, Nomad senior guide

Migration and the Grumeti River

From Felix and Jacob, our guides at Serengeti Safari Camp:

There has been some rain over these last days, around Lobo and Mbuzi Mawe and everything is starting to green up. We've seen the migration crossing the Grumeti River. There are plenty of herds around Togoro and Ikoma too.

Felix - I saw a crocodile 'in partnership' with a fish eagle, taking fish out of the water, which the fish eagle then ate. I also saw a cheetah with very young, about two month old, cubs.

Jacob - A first for me, seeing hippo mating in the Grumeti River, that and a poor old zebra getting taken down by a hippo whilst crossing the river.

Driving down through the Serengeti

I drove from Kogatende to Loliondo this morning. There is great game in the east and some herds of wildebeest, no doubt part of those that are being reported by the Mara operators.

No migration in Koga yet but I'm told that the majority of the  herds are in Grumeti and will start to head north fairly soon, where we'll start seeing them from Lamai Serengeti.

Cheers, John Corse (MD, Nomad)

Western Corridor and crocs in pools

Slightly cooler weather at the moment is a bonus for those out game viewing. Most of the action is being seen around the Kirawira/Grumeti area of the Western Corridor. The Grumeti River is not that high, but there are many pools filled with water that the crocs are hiding in, waiting for the unsuspecting wildebeest to visit. Guests out now were just treated to that spectacle as they sat beside the pool. Leopards seem to be all around our Serengeti Safari Camp, currently in Musabi.
