Early Migration

East Africa’s annual wildebeest migration began nearly a month early due to unusual weather patterns this season. The premature start in late May caught many safari resorts and tour operators off guard.

“Climate changes such as heavy rains in Tanzania as well as depletion of resources in one area are among the reasons we are having an early wildebeest migration,” said Shadrack Ngene of the Kenya Wildlife Service.

Kenyan weather experts say the rainy seasons have become unreliable and do not follow the schedules of just a few decades ago.
