Don’t be scared of the long rains in April

HerdTracker update 03 Apr 2019

Don’t be scared of the long rains in April! It rains mostly in the evening and days are generally clear.

The main effect of the rains is that the plains will be wet, and the black cotton soil slippery. If
you can deal with the rain and slippery roads, you’ll be rewarded with excellent sightings. We highly recommend April as one of the most consistent times to see the herds. This is when they slowly get going as the newborn calves and foals get mobile.

We recommend a minimum five-night / three-night accommodation split, with the bulk going to the Kusini / Moru camp areas for an optimal Serengeti migration safari in April.
