Current migration status in the Mara

Hi,

I am going to the Mara (Serena lodge) on 23rd July, and wondered if anybody has been recently.

Have any of is it likely that any of the mrigration herds will arrive by this time.

What is the general animal viewing like currently. Sorry so many questions.

Looking forward to the trip and your replies.

Many thanks Daniel

A friend sent me this message on 16th June.....

The herds in the Serengeti have started to make their way towards the Tanzania/Kenya border, which means that one of nature’s greatest shows is about to begin!

I'm hoping he will send me another update shortly.

If you cut and paste the link below that should help. It gives updates on the migration.

Bruce,

Thank you so much for the website. We'll be in Kenya in late July, early August, specifically for the migration. We're keeping our fingers crossed, and now we can check it out on the Heritage website.

As of today - 27 June - this link: http://www.atta.co.uk/heritage does not yet show any information about the migration for this summer.

You are right it doesn’t show any activity at the moment but once the migration arrives they update it on a regular basis. Their sister site does however keep you updated on the migrations movements in Tanzania and you are able to keep an eye on their progress as they head towards Kenya. The link is below and was updated on the 26th June.
