Migration news: Central Serengeti

There has been some rain in the central and southern Serengeti. The herds are moving south towards the Ndutu Plains. The majority of the migrating wildebeest are between Lobo, Seronera and the western perimeter of the Loliondo Game Controlled Area. The grazing is sustaining the herds, but more rain is required to turn the plains lush green. In the coming weeks the herds should arrive in the Ndutu Plains area where they will stay until March/April next year.

Game viewing is good, with many sightings of predators who track the migrating herds. The rain is moderate, not affecting roads too badly for safari guests.
