The world-famous wildebeest migration in Serengeti National Park will not most rely not on being able to reach Masaai Mara in Kenya in October this year as it is regularly used to.
The main reason of this evidenced by the sports in Serengeti parks is that the last year and just ended May heavy rains in the Serengeti, have resulted into the park having enough grassland for grazing. These rains made the migration to delay for almost two months in the area of Serengeti and Ngorongoro to the north.
Under normal circumstance this June and July they would have been to the northern areas of Lobo and Kleins but this is not the case.
Currently, the wildebeest migration is still in the east-central Serengeti in the areas of Nyambogati, Togolo heading to Lobo and some of them are also the areas of Maswa, Kirawira, and Nyamuma.
This late departure of the of the Migration will make them arrive late in the northern Serengeti and if the November rains will meet them there, that means the chances of coming back to south Serengeti will be high and therefore the likelihood of staying in the Serengeti the whole year than that of reaching Maasai Mara Kenya
