June 2012 update: Migration on the move

The migration is now moving from the central Serengeti. They are mostly heading north west, but large herds are also going north and west. Zebra and wildebeest are now stretched from Seronera (central Serengeti) towards the western corridor close to Grumeti River. The first of the herds are likely to cross the Grumeti River in the next few days. This is one of the highlights of the annual wildbeest migration as the herds move across the Serengeti. For much of the year they are immobile and grazing, but in June/July thay can normally be seen crossing the crocodile infested waters of the Grumeti River.

Based on these movements, do you expect the herds to reach Masai Mara by mid July?
