Hi HerdTracker

Our guides are reporting herds in the Maswa area but its very dry and dusty in Ndutu so we are hoping for rain to bring them in. Little signs of birthing though.

Tabby - Assistant Camp Manager - Lemala Ndutu

Hi HerdTracker

Our guests are so excited as they didn’t expect to see migration in Seronera in these numbers but for the last few nights our camp has been surrounded by the migration and during the day you can see them all flooding into the valley.

Exciting times at the camp and rather noisy. Excuse the quality of the image taken from my phone.

Kind Regards,
Ebenezer

Hi HerdTracker

Update from the Camp Managers at Lemala Ewanjan Serengeti:

We have a lot of wildebeest in our area and they appear to be moving down south.  What is amazing is that we dont see the birthing yet but guides yesterday did see one not far from our camp.

I am waiting on images.

Hi HerdTracker,

The experience at Mara is fantastic about the game we even had a kill in front of the tent number three. Big cats are available too. Yesterday the leopard was spotted at around the Olakira Kopjes.

Crossings are almost happening everyday at points number 4,7 and a little bit happened at number 2 this week.

Kind regards,
Greg
