Afternoon rain storms have allowed the herds to graze until their heats are content in northern Serengeti-with long grasses mown down, but fresh growth coming through. Wildebeest are spread from Nyamalumba, Bologonja , Lobo and even Kichwa Tembo areas. This is a massive area for game driving with a huge display of predator activity in between. Crossings have slowed down, but still visible at times. With the herds still meandering through the rolling hills of the northern Serengeti, we can look forward to a great display in 'November and December as they come down to central areas.

In north-eastern Tanzania, we are proud to have a growing population that roams between Masai Mara and Serengeti freely An adult black rhinoceros stands 140-180 cm high at he stioulder and is 3-3.75 m in length An adult typically weighs from 800 to 1,400 kg They typically have two horns on the skull are made of keratin with the larger front horn typically around 50 cm long. This horn is what illegal poaching is aiming for. However,our rhinos are tracked and recorded by a special protection force whose entire aim is to keep this incredible species In addition. to this protection a new De-Snaring Project in the Serengeti will always boost strength to protection unit numbers so please look for more information and donate where possible
