Migration update: Wildebeest moving towards Seronera

The main herds of wildebeest and zebra have started moving northwest away from Ndutu plains to Naabi Hill gate on their way to Seronera.
The best camps to be based at are the private mobile camps around Seronera, Kusini Camp or Serengeti Serena Lodge.

Ndutu is muddy with lots of game

A number of the auxillary tracks in the south Serengeti are closed as they are impassable due to the extended periods of rain.

For those safari enthusiasts who do make it to Ndutu, they are rewarded with herds spread across the short grass plains and good sightings of predators. Cheetah cubs have been seen.

Migration Update: Muddy game drives

The rains continue to fall on the Serengeti plains. There have been good downpours since the middle of March. Road conditions are poor with loads of mud on most of the safari routes. Despite this, game viewing is good in the open short grass plains of Ndutu. Be prepared to get wet.

Wildebeest and zebra have been seen crossing the Olduvai River.
