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!

Serengeti Migration Update

Well, it's all happening in the Serengeti, you'll be pleased to hear.  The rains have returned and with them, the wild-beasties have come flooding back into Ndutu.  Our Nomad guides report that they're everywhere, all over the place, wall-to-wall wildebeest...totally amazing and full, full, full.  Which is just the way we like it frankly.

If you want specifics, you'll find herds around Naabi/Ndutu/Triangle/Masek and the plains.

They've not yet reached Nduara though but there has been substantial rain there recently, so they should be heading in that direction.'s just nail-biting stuff.  Keep an eye on the blog for more updates and we'll try and post photos soon.

Serengeti Migration Update

February has been very dry in the Serengeti, with just a few showers that have not stimulated that much needed green flush of grass in the Ndutu short grass plains.  As a result, the herds have been very dispersed; some heading into the Central Serengeti while others have disappeared into the Hidden Valley and Maswa.  Visitors to the park have often had to drive out all day in search of the herds and some have very sadly been disappointed, although that said, the cats around the Ndutu area have been out in force and we've had some great cheetah and lion sightings, so it's by no means all bad "gnus".  It really is a reminder that there is no sure thing in nature.  The good news is that the rains are falling again around Ndutu and up in the Lamai area.  Our guides tell us that the wildebeest are trickling in and starting to re-group.  Fingers crossed they now follow their well-trodden routes so we can be there with front row seats!
