The Migration herds are all in the Northern Serengeti area but still spread out, from Ikorongo area through to Bolagonja. Clients started seeing the first crossings of the Mara River about a week ago. While some of the wildebeest will head into the Maasai Mara for the dry season, others will equally stay on the Tanzanian side of the border and others will cross back and forth. The wildebeest are not interested in the politics but just where the grazing and water are. Again this has started early this year as we would normally expect the crossings from early August but this is a good three weeks early repeating the pattern of the season.
