July 2018 – Migration Updates

Crossing season at the Mara River is starting, according to our sightings. Great Migration Camps has also had Migration Updates from guides, camps and lodges out in the field.

The Wildebeest Migration in July 2018

The first half of 2018 brought a massive amount of rain to East Africa, resulting in an abundance of food and water in the Serengeti. This in turn caused a slower than usual movement of the wildebeest herds migrating north to the Mara River. Most of the herds have been congregating in the Western Corridor near Grumeti, but the Eastern Herds have been moving north slowly. The first crossings have been witnessed, now is the time to be at the Mara River, Serengeti side.
