The rains in the Serengeti are calling the great herds to return to the south and east of the Serengeti. Central and southern Serengeti where the new grass is waiting for the wildebeest and zebra to return is the best place to be for the migration at this time of year.
Mobile camps are set up around the central and southern part of the park in anticipation of the return of the great migration.

Short rains in the Serengeti.
The great migration is starting to depart for the sweet grasses of the Serengeti. The short rains are falling in the Mara and so replenishing the grass for the resident herds. The young predators are learning their hunting skills and fine-tuning them with practise.
