Nomad Tanzania Wildebeest Migration Report

Heading on up

by Nomad Tanzania

19 June 2015

The majority of our favourite migrating beasts are still around the Seronera area in central Serengeti, mainly concentrated around the Maasai Kopjes and the Gol Mountains.  

There is movement in the air though and a few groups have started heading up North and have been spotted around Bologonja. We will keep you posted as the rest are likely to follow suit shortly. 

Hot off the plains...

News reaching us from the Serengeti is that Nomad guide Nathan spotted large herds of wildebeest and zebra yesterday crossing the seasonal river that brings water to Lake Magadi in Moru. 

These pictures were taken by Nathan at Vidimbwini near the Simba kopjes and today the herds were seen moving from the Naabi Hill towards Olbaye, with a long line still moving into Moru.

Of gnu's and pussy-cats

Our guides in the Serengeti have been tracking down the migration for us again and our latest reports are that the wildebeest are still keeping us guessing and are now exactly where they should have been…3 months ago!

The herds are stretching from Ndutu, across the plains to Naabi and Lemuta, the Gol and Simba Kopjes are full of grunting gnu’s and there are still some smaller herds further north near Barafu and towards Seronera. On Tara’s recent trip to the Serengeti the cats were out in force with a pride of lions in the kopje right in front of camp roaring through the night, another pride with 11 cubs enjoying an afternoon kip not too far from camp, and a drive that came across not one, but TWO leopards.  As always, the Serengeti is full of surprises.
