Following the Herds


The annual migration of over 2 million animals in the Serengeti – Mara ecosystem is one of the most famous and well documented natural wonders of the world.

The migration follows a clock-wise loop covering an estimated 1,800 miles each year in search of rain and grass. The herds migrate throughout the year, constantly seeking fresh grazing with the exact timing of the wildebeest migration being dependent upon the rainfall patterns each year.

The herds have recently been spotted massing on the plains in front of Elewana Serengeti Pioneer Camp as they head north and the first sightings of the migration have come in from Elewana Serengeti Migration Camp.
