Ndutu and the southern plains still packed with huge wildebeest numbers

HerdTracker update 13 May 2015 by Ndutu Safari Lodge

Hi Carel,

We continue to have lots of localised rain, falling in different parts of the greater Ndutu area. This is good news as we'll keep the beasties here for longer. Because of this, the herds are very spread out, making it quite difficult to get that sense of vast numbers.

Makao Plains, Woodlands and the Two trees areas are quite empty except for random large groups. The Twin Hills Plains are full, and large groups coming through the woodlands to Lake Masek for water. 

North of the main road as far as Lemuta, Olduvai, Gol etc the plains are crazy full, with wildebeest as far as the eye can see. Up there, the rolling landscape gives you some elevation so you can really see them spread out. The water holes in the middle of the day go nuts. I was surprised to see very young babies still, and few predators so all very relaxed.

Video clip coming to you of one of the water holes near Lemuta.

Cheers,
Ainslie
