The migration has arrived at Singita Lamai!

The migration has arrived at Singita Lamai!

If you’ve been following Singita’s blog for the past few weeks, you will have seen that we’ve been tracking the progress of this year’s wildebeest migration in Tanzania.  Having passed by Singita Faru Faru Lodge in early June, and then moving through the Serengeti to surround Singita Sabora Tented Camp, around the Explore Mobile Tented Camps, and below Singita Sasakwa Lodge, the herds have now reached Lamai. As you will see from these amazing photographs, which were taken over the past few days right in front of Singita Mara River Tented Camp, huge numbers of wildebeest have started gathering across the river.

The herds began by crossing the Mara River in small groups, but soon larger herds began to traverse the water.  Greater numbers are expected to cross in the coming weeks, eventually crossing back over multiple times, possibly even through October.

The annual migration will draw to a close at the end of the year, until only a few stragglers remain.  No two years are the same and the migration path varies from year to year depending on weather patterns and other environmental factors.

 

Singita’s lodges in Tanzania are perfectly situated in the path of this epic annual event where over one million wildebeest and other plains game travel over 200 miles of grasslands, following the rains in search of better grazing.
