Nomad Tanzania, safari guide captured the wildebeest and zebra migration quenching their thirst in a waterhole in the Ndutu area. 

General Manager, Simon Kisingi also spotted a large number of the wildebeest and zebra migration in the Ndutu area.

13 Dec 2017

A large herd of the great migration was sighted around Kilima Saba in the Serengeti even though the area is not often used, especially in the rainy season. 

However, there are no camps in the area as it is a road in the Serengeti. Vistors are advised to drive through the seven hills from Naabi Gate to the Central Serengeti.

Hi HerdTracker

Greetings from Serengeti,

The herds are spread out over the Serengeti plains. 
Surprisingly I have seen a small number of herds heading back to the south.

The big herds had been seen around Togoro Plain.

Hi Jarred

An update from just now, around 300/400 wildebeest in the Seronera area near to the Visitor Centre, also another 300/400 on the road / junction of Sopa / Serengeti Pioneer Camp.

Not sure where the big herds currently are.

Hi HerdTracker

At Seronera, there are at least 10,000 wildebeest with zebra.  Sero is dry and dusty and they are looking for water.

We also spotted 2000-3000 zebra and wildebeest from Serengeti Pioneer Camp down to the junction of Sero-Lake Magadi. Spread out heading to Lake Magadi.

Kind Regards,
