Migration update from Grumeti

25 Jul 2015 by andBeyond

The large splinter herds that are gathered in the Western Corridor are still grazing at Nyasirori, just east of andBeyond Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp. With numerous water sources and new vegetation in abundance, the wildebeest don’t appear to be leaving the area any time soon. They will eventually migrate northeast to the Mara River to reunite with the rest of the mega herd, but for now, the grazing conditions are too good to resist.

The herds have been observed drinking at the Grumeti River’s edge, as well as the Kanyanja River (in front of andBeyond Grumeti) and the Majimbele swamp. The predators continue to take full advantage, as the circle of life continues in the vast Serengeti. This beautiful lioness was seen carefully moving her tiny cubs into the thicket … an incredible sighting.
