Big rains on the Southern Serengeti plains

HerdTracker update 23 Dec 2014 by Alex Walker’s Serian

Hey Carel,

The signal has been pretty temperamental. Perhaps to do with the storms. We have just had another half an inch now. There is a large herd spread from us here in Kakessio north for about ten kilometers and along the Maswa tree line. Its a lot greener here.

South of Ndutu it remains partially dry and there are large herds of Zebra west of the tree line. The lush green area starts again at the Serengeti boundary as you head west towards Kusini. Large mixed herds here too. There are occasional sightings of foals on the plains, probably premature births. It wouldn't surprise me if we see the foals dropping in the next two weeks.

Some baby Zebra already up and running…
