Only 1 wildebeest was lost to a lion! A small price for the survival of thousands of other wildebees

HerdTracker update 05 Nov 2019 by Mashauri Joseph

Only one wildebeest was lost to a lion! A small price for the survival of thousands of other wildebeest.

The likelihood is that at the beginning of November, the herds are still lingering in the northern Serengeti regions of Kogatende and Lamai and you can still catch river crossings at this time.

Towards the end of the month, river crossings are much less frequent as most have begun to disperse south. However, because of the light rains, the camps and lodges are exceptional value for money. You can stay at some of the continent’s most luxurious permanent lodges in November at half the price they would be in July and August, and still, catch river crossing scenes. The parks are a lot quieter so you get a little slice of Serengeti wilderness all to yourself. All in all, if you don’t mind getting a bit wet and love value for money, then early November, in particular, is a fantastic time to see the migration.

Best places to experience the migration: Safaris In Tanzania

Recommended safari: Migration in the Mara and Gorilla Trekking
