The bulk of the migration is now in the northern Serengeti - between Wogakuria and Bologonja - with just some stragglers left coming up from the Grumeti area. Our Serengeti Safari Camp is perfectly placed right in the middle of all the action; guests out with our Nomad guides last week saw fantastic wildebeest crossings at the Mara River - also plenty of cats: lionesses taking down a wildebeest at Woga, a family of cheetah sitting surveying a long line of wildebeests, from their high vantage point atop a termite mound, and a leopard killing a young gazelle right in front of the car. They also saw a rhinoceros and a youngster near Nyamalumbwa, Bologonja.

As per the last posting, the migratory herds are still split with one lot still in the Western Corridor/Grumeti area (mostly north of the river) and the other now in Bologonja in the northern Serengeti. We will be shortly moving up to Bologonja as the herds start to head north (we're anticipating towards the end of the month). In the meantime, Nomad guests continue to enjoy the sightings from our camp in Simiti. The rains have ceased, and the nights are getting cooler as we head into winter. Lion and cheetah have been seen by most guests this last week too.
