A large herd of wildebeest and zebra were captured in the Central Serengeti

HerdTracker update 22 Mar 2019 by Serengeti Nomad

A large herd of wildebeest and zebra were captured in the Central Serengeti heading towards the Makoma Hills and Magadi. The herds normally use this route to get to the western Serengeti. The migration will be in the western Serengeti early this year following the dramatic change of rainfall pattern in the Serengeti.

Budget travellers are best off staying in the Central Serengeti, as the Western Corridor and the Grumeti are more geared towards higher-end travellers, however, there is a campsite located at a lodge near the Ndabaka entrance gate, and a public campsite at the gate itself. Mid-range options in the sector include camps located just outside the park boundaries, while the region is most famous for its superb, intimate luxury lodges and mobile camps – some of which are completely exclusive.

The nearest accommodation to the herds: Dunia, Serengeti National Park Safaris

Recommended safari: Walking Safari in the Serengeti
