New app tracks Serengeti's great migration in Real Time

Now wannabe explorers who can’t make it to Tanzania to watch the awe-inspiring wildebeest migration can track their movements throughout the Serengeti in real time on a new app. HerdTracker is Google map that shows instant updates of the 1.5 million animals’ precise location.

Users can also chart a migration map, which publishes accurate monthly predictions, based on data from the Serengeti.

Real time updates are sourced from pilots who fly over the Serengeti and Masai Mara, safari guides on the ground, Tanzania National Parks Authority rangers and lodges in Kenya.
