Lack of rain has slowed calving season down

Hi HerdTracker

From the air, the herds are quite spread out. The lack of proper rains have split them apart and I hear that the situation on the ground is quite dire. While many of the females have calved already, it seems some are holding out in the hope of better rains.

A huge portion if the herds were spotted near the Seronera airstrip and west with some herd further South in the Moru area. Few small herds also spotted further South of Ndutu too. I think the whole Serengeti is hoping for a few days of good rains to rejuvenate the plains again.

Thanks and Regards,
