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.

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.
