Want to see the migration? HerdTracker calculates the distance between the exact location of the migrating herds and various lodges and camps in Kenya and Tanzania. This gives you the best opportunity to book last-minute accommodation so that you can experience the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti and Masai Mara.

Planning on bringing your friends and family along? Check if there’s space for everyone using our regularly updated, live room-availability calendar alongside each last-minute accommodation.

In addition, HerdTracker also offers scheduled wildebeest migration safaris during peak tourist season months February to August .

How does HerdTracker work?

The precise location of the migratory herds is sourced weekly from four different trusted sources: pilots who fly over the Serengeti, safari guides on the ground, Tanzania National Parks Authority rangers and lodges in the Masai Mara in Kenya. These trusty sources also send us exclusive images and videos of the wildebeest migration to back-up their report.

Every single HerdTracker update can be found on our live-feed page, where can join the conversation about the great wildebeest migration.

(P.S. If you're looking for safari deals, we have some great offers for you.)
