We've received reports from Lamai Serengeti today of herds crossing the Mara River near the Kogatende Airstrip yesterday. Two days ago they were crossing in their thousands and our guests and guides watched the drama for over 2 hours. Today the grunting of many wildebeest is reaching the ears of the folk at Lamai so we hope for some more action soon. Keep an eye on our Facebook for images.

Those wildebeest have been up to their tricks again. Reluctant to be anywhere that they should be, they've been lingering during much of May around Naabi and Golini. Some were ferreting around in the Hidden Valley and Ndutu but very few were in Moru.
However, our Nomad guides are reporting that the herds are gathering in the Central Serengeti, right where our Serengeti Safari Camp has just moved to. Decent numbers are being spotted around Turner Springs, Central Seronera and traveling from Moru towards Rongai. It's still raining on and off in the central part of the Serengeti but Ngorongoro is dry and getting dustier.
We've had a stern word with those wild beasties and hopefully they will now run according to schedule, regardless of leaves on the track, and we'll keep you posted. Of course, this is particularly why we love our natural world, otherwise we'd stay at home and watch Discovery Channel.

Well, just to prove that nature calls the shots, the wildebeest migration seems to be getting more intriguing and unpredictable by the day. The rains that promote the green flush that proves so irresistible to every gnu seem to be coming in dribs and drabs. Our guides, roaming the plains in search of the action, report that there hasn’t been much rain around Ndutu and the wildebeest seem to be moving towards the central Serengeti. However, fresh showers in the last few days might induce a change of plan…watch this space. For more on Nomad camps and guides visit www.nomad-tanzania.com
