The changeable weather over the last week has brought some rain showers and overcast days which have cooled everything down. The bulk of the wildebeest herds are starting to move north-west, with Nomad guides reporting herds in the area of Kusini and heading up towards Moru. Game has been very good this last week with guests seeing a number of cheetahs and large prides of lion on the periphery of the migratory herds.

The bulk of the migration is still in the southern Serengeti in the area between Kusini and Endulen (either side of the Ndutu area). Some rain over the last week has meant there is still some good grazing about. Guests on safari with us have been treated to some fantastic game sightings recently with lots of cats on the menu, plus an Aardvark was spotted in Loliondo, a rare sighting indeed! Other guests witnessed two cheetah hunting a wildebeest; one of the cheetah ended up being carried along on the back of the wildebeest for about 30 metres before dropping off. The wildebeest managed to escape. Intrepid guests climbed the Naibardat Hills, in the Ndutu area, quite a climb at 2300 feet but well worth it to see the view from the top.
