Part of the Tanzania Safaris & Tanzania Wildlife Adventures & African Safari Collection

The Great Wildebeest Migration is undoubtedly one of nature’s most spectacular events encompassing the trials and tribulations of millions of wildebeest and other migratory animals on their quest for lush, green grass and fresh water. It’s the ultimate journey of life and death – so why would you want to miss it?

Going on a migration safari can be costly, and naturally, you want to make sure that you get full value for your money – and that’s where HerdTracker comes in.

HerdTracker is a Google map giving you accurate, weekly updates of where the wildebeest herds are at this present time. We receive our updates from pilots who fly over the Serengeti and Masai Mara, safari guides, Tanzania National Parks Authority rangers and lodges.

Created by Discover Africa, HerdTracker is the ultimate prediction tool to help you see the wildebeest herds live.

It hasn’t taken long for HerdTracker to be noticed. British news organisations such as The Daily Mail and The Telegraph have both featured HerdTracker in their online publications.

You can also find a migration map with monthly predictions by our East Africa expert Carel Verhoef – who used previous years’ migratory patterns and real-time updates received from pilots, rangers and safari guides in the Serengeti to estimate where the wildebeest herds will be in future.
