The Serengeti wildebeest migration: how to track

February 2nd, 2016|Advice|

If you’re about to go on safari in the Serengeti, and want to know where most of the wildlife is, then may I point you in the direction of http://www.discoverafrica.com/herdtracker . This map and blog keeps everyone up to date with the current location of the main Serengeti wildebeest migation (which is vital information for anyone going on safari because, of course, wherever they are, you’ll also find their main predators – lions, leopards etc).

At the moment they seem to be around the Ndutu area, close to the border with the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. They are also calving at the moment – so there should be plenty of action!

About the Author:

I am a little obsessed with Mount Kilimanjaro. Since writing the first edition of the Kilimanjaro guide in 2001 I have climbed the mountain more than 30 times and occasionally leads treks up the mountain myself. And when I'm not in Tanzania researaching for the next edition of the guide (the fifth edition was published in 2018), I can be found living near Hastings, England, updating this website (which was first published in 2006), writing about the national trails of England, answering Kili-related emails and putting on weight. Friends describe me as living proof that virtually anybody can climb Kilimanjaro.
