The migratory herds are heading towards the short grass of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and will arrive in the Ndutu Safari Lodge in the next few days. 

For the past 10-12 years, the wildebeest herds have settled in and around the Lakes Ndutu and Masek. This area is lush in February and an ideal location for wildebeest to give birth to offspring. Expect scenes of delight (newborns finding their feet) and horror (predators arrive to prey on the young).

The herds were seen making their way to the Grumeti Reserve in the Western Serengeti National Park.

Some of the wildebeest have settled into the Moru Kopjes on their long trek to the Southern Serengeti short grass for the calving season.

There are some things that just have to be done in a lifetime and hot air ballooning over the Masai Mara wildebeest migration is one of them. There is little that can match the aesthetic appeal of a huge colourful balloon rising like an airborne out of the pre-dawn darkness into the first rays of the sun. 

Niamh captured the herds in the Masai Mara heading towards the Serengeti during her hot air balloon safaris.

Masai Mara is the northmost point of the great wildebeest migration. Over two million wildebeest migrate through Tanzania and Kenya in search of grazing opportunities.

During Elvis visit, the Mara River was dry - making it easy for the movement of the wildebeest.
