The Migration Movement updated - July 22, 2016
Big herds have moved north with the majority located between Kogatende and Lobo in the Serengeti.
Meanwhile, late last week reports from Rekero Camp were that the wildebeest herds were crossing the Mara River at the Lookout Hill crossing point.
Yesterday afternoon, large herds of wildebeest and zebra both resident and migratory had moved from the Topi Plains and Malima Tatu areas and into the
East Marsh, Bila Shaka and Musiara grasslands. Governors Camps reported yesterday evening, a large crossing of wildebeest and zebra were seen going
from west to east at the main crossing point, four wildebeest were taken by the resident crocodile, one yearling wildebeest that was caught by a crocodile
struggled and kicked, it was able to get away with the crocodile only on its tail.

The migration is around Kakesio and the Makao plains right now. Lots of of newborns witnessed.
There are huge herds of wildebeest still around Kimuma Hill and across to Ubuntu and Ndutu. North of there on the plains towards It’s still sunny and dry
here and plenty of green grass so hopefully they will be around here for a bit longer!

Rain on the plains: The New Year started for our grunting gnu's with a rather prolonged dry spell which persisted through most of January, and that meant
that the bulk of the migration herds moved towards Kusini and Maswa. However, reports from our guides in the Serengeti is that it has now started raining
again, and the southern plains are full of wildebeest. The herds are spreading from Piyaya, Barafu, Golini and over the triangle between Naabi and
Ndutu, through to the Ndutu marsh, Matiti and all the way out towards Kusini. It really is an incredible scene out there, check out these pics taken
by our guide Ian Kiwelu.
It is raining almost daily at the moment, which does make game drives in some areas a little interesting, but it has brought the wildebeest back to where
they should be - happy days.
I am with clients between Lobo and Bologonja and we bumped into the eastern herds, they should be heading across the Sand River soon into the Mara, they
are moving slowly because of all the grass and water which is great for the lion in the area.

Guests came back reporting that they had enjoyed huge numbers of wildebeest not too far from Four Seasons on the way to Lobo - I assume near Mbuzi Mawe.
They said the had also see quite alot of males preparing for the rut and butting heads.

Drivers coming in today report huge zebra numbers out on the plains around Naabi hill, and large (several hundred at a time) groups dotted around Triangle
between Naabi and here, and out on Caracal Plateau, Olduvai and Twin Hills plains so still many around.

We have an update this week from in the Western Corridor of the Serengeti. The guides took a drive to the central Serengeti to see the migration which
was a remarkable sighting for our clients.
