Nomad Tanzania Wildebeest Migration Report

The Wild North

by Nomad Tanzania

8 July 2013

Most of the action seems to be in the North now with crossings happening every few days and big herds gathering around Bologonja.  Guests at Lamai Serengeti have been treated to some fabulous sights at the Mara River.  See our Facebook for pics and video posts from Nomad Guides in the field.

Fast and furious: beasts on the move

The beasts are still running fast....

Currently Olobaye is pretty empty, but still and always good game in the nearby Moru area.  There are big concentrations on the Musabi plains and all along the Grumeti River.

But nonetheless some of them can’t wait and have already reached Lobo, Togoro Plains and even near Bolagonja so we are definitely on for an early year. Let’s see when the first ones reach Lamai Serengeti!

Wildy news and some post-rains updates on the North

by Nomad Tanzania

5 June 2013

Our guides are back out in the field after the low season and so the firsthand updates are coming in thick and fast.

It seems that the beasties are moving up early this year. There are big herds between Seronera, Retima Hippo Pool, Banagi area and on the Musabi plains, but some are already moving towards Ikoma, Mbuzi Mawe and towards the North.  There are still big herds of zebra and also smaller wildebeest groups in the Moru area and the plains south of Seronera and towards Hidden Valley.

And other points of interest vis a vis the northern circuit:

It's worth knowing that the roads in Tarangire are in a bit of a state due to flooding during the rainy season, and driving can be longer and bumpier than expected, so be prepared.

Also, just to let you know that the visitors and information centre in Manyara was destroyed during the floods, so there's nothing there for the time being.

The NCAA ascent road is still closed and we are eagerly waiting for an update from NCAA as we're expecting them to announce opening soon.

Find out when and where to go to see the best of the migration.
