Migration Monday Update

Welcome to your ‘Migration Monday’ fix… This week’s impressive photo comes from our guide Victor Nyakiriga, thanks Victor!

The Southern Serengeti, Ndutu and the greater NCA (Ngorongoro Conservation Area) are still enjoying some good rainfall; the area is looking very green with precious grass growth, which is vital for our new Wildebeest moms and all their newborn calves.

Olakira Camp reported in their latest wildlife update that they had a lot of rain, which made the roads quite muddy and in some places not passable, so please do take good care when driving in the Ndutu area. However, Olakira is still enjoying very good numbers of Wildebeest in the general Ndutu area; there are hundreds of babies with more being born daily, very exciting. The wildebeest are stretched from West of Naabi Gate all the way down to the Southern Ndutu area.

The guides at Ubuntu Camp also reported that they still have thousands of Wildebeest in the area around the camp and the plains surrounding Ubuntu, despite last week where some of them moved into Maswa Game Reserve.

Till next week!
