Great Migration Camps Mobile Safari Camp

At Great Migration Camps, we have drawn inspiration from the pioneering safari days of old to recreate an experience that gets you right into the very heart of the incredible bio-diversity that exists there in the Serengeti.

Set against the backdrop of the great wildebeest migration, our completely mobile, self-sufficient and environmentally-friendly camp can travel anywhere in the Serengeti depending on the time of year and the stage and location of the migration, giving you a front row set to one of Mother Nature’s greatest events. It was scientist Anthony R. E. Sinclair who described the Serengeti as “the world’s greatest wildlife region” and Great Migration Camps is expertly positioned to take you right into the heart of it.

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.

Migration Update:  9 July 2018

Great Migration Camps was at the Mara River for the first small crossing. A small herd headed north to south! Take a look…

Migration Update: 14 July 2018

Mara Bush Camps sent a migration update from the Masai Mara side – reporting a crossing on the Sand River. Look at the video here

Migration Update: 15 July 2018

There were some huge herds cross the Kichwa Tembo road just south of the Mara River, Serengeti side.  The small herds are starting to congregate together and migrating north with some energy.

Later that day, Lemala guide Baraka Willium, recorded the first major crossing of the season on the Mara River in his migration update on 15 July 2018 , wildebeest headed south to north. Take a look at the video here.

More Migration Action is on the way

The end of July is hotting up as the Migration Updates start coming in.  We’ll keep you posted with the latest news and sightings and recommend trying to get yourself to see the most incredible natural show on earth.

August looks set for a bumper season, with lots of predator action to follow the herds.  Watch this amazing scene as a male lion defends his kill earlier this month. More of this on the way.
