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!

The Grass is Always Greener on the Other Side

The crossings have begun.

The Mara River is split up into different crossing points, all numbered, helping our guides and our Serengeti Nomad keep track of where the latest crossing is going on. A few weeks back the wildebeest were found crossing in large numbers at crossing points number 3 & 4, and more recently they are around crossing points 7 & 10. 

The migration is unpredictable and the wildebeest can make the crossing several times, moving back and forth between the Maasai Mara and Serengeti before they move on. With some short bursts of rain last week, the herds have been doing just that, and have made the crossing numerous times looking for the greener grazing spots.
