Migration Monday Update - 17 November 2014 Migration Monday update: Right now the wildebeest have all left to the South of the Serengeti with only some zebra being left behind. The big head of the Migration is now approximately between the central Seronera and Moru area. Dunia Camp's manager, Angel, said it has now been about two weeks since the wildebeest moved to the south east of the central Serengeti, the area also known as Moru 2. The camp smells fresh after having 2 hours of heavy rain which washed away the dust after all gnus left. Many herds are now heading towards the central Serengeti and probably will be heading south if it will rain. Namiri Plains guide Blessed, has said the migration is very close to camp this week!

Ruaha blog: Land of Giants On my first ever visit to Kwihala Camp in Ruaha National Park I had an inkling of what to expect after reading the reports from people who live and work in Ruaha and watching Owen Prumm’s amazing film about the lion and buffalo conflicts that occur at the end of the dry season (watch the preview here). I had three days to see as much of it as time allowed and was thrilled to come across so many incredible vistas and encounters with wildlife.

I wanted to photograph Ruaha’s vast and rugged landscape and its inhabitants the best way I could, but I understand the limits of being a visitor for a short time and expectations being set too high on what you hope to achieve.

So loaded with cameras and gear, I stepped off the plane into the searing heat of Msembe airstrip, where the dry air of late October made shimmering mirages over the landscape. This is the best time for game viewing. Animals congregate close to the dwindling sources of water in the Great Ruaha, Mwagusi and Madonya Rivers. The uncomfortable heat is a trade off with the excellent wildlife viewing you can expect in this iconic park.

With only a fraction of the park’s 20,000-odd square kilometres being utilised for game drives, I still only saw very few other vehicles while out on safari, comparable to being in a private concession elsewhere. I really enjoyed the company of the guides, Pietro, Festo, Lorenzo and Marius, and each of them has a passion for the wilderness and the magic of Ruaha that is obvious to all who encounter them. Sandy is an excellent and efficient manager, as well as a genial hostess.

Please visit the Ruaha Blog to see the pictures that capture magical days of a truly unique and special place that will stay with me for a long time.

Migration Monday Update - 10 November 2014 It&#39;s Migration Monday!<br /> <br /> The herds are scattered all over the place due to the rains, they are stretching a few miles south of the Ndutu area all the way north towards Seronera. The majority of the herds are centred around the Moru area and right now the migration is right at the front door of <a href="http://dunia.asiliaafrica.com/Home.aspx" target="_blank">Dunia Camp</a> with the herds making lots of noise at night whilst passing through. There are also a few groups that are heading towards the southern Serengeti. Stay tuned for next Monday&rsquo;s migration update.<br /> <br /> Thank you to our guide, Hamza, for the great shot of some wildebeest outside Dunia Camp.
