Victor in Ghana - 13 Mar 2018
Victor has made a big movement westwards and is now in Ghana, West Africa. By 8 March he had covered 1790km (1100 miles) from his previous location in Central African Republic, from where his tag last transmitted on 3 March, and was west of Lake Volta. He's a little bit ahead of where he was at this time last year, when he moved to Ghana in early April and had crossed the desert to northern Africa by 23 April. Will he spend longer preparing for his crossing or take on the challenge earlier than in 2017?
Victor in Central African Republic - 15 Feb 2018
Victor's newest signals on 14 February show he's moved a further 400km (245 miles) northwards and is now in the west of the Central African Republic. 
Victor begins his journey home - 06 Feb 2018
Since the end of November Victor has been in south-eastern Gabon but signals received yesterday showed that he has now left his wintering location!  He has travelled 380km (235 miles) and is now in the Republic of Congo in the north of the Odzala-Kokoua National Park. It's great to see him start his journey home.
Victor heads south - 30 Nov 2017
Since 27 November Victor has journeyed 265km (170 miles) south within Gabon by the early hours of the 29 November.  He is now just south-east of Bongoville. 
Victor moves into Gabon - 10 Oct 2017
From northern Gabon, Victor has moved to eastern Gabon, travelling 270km (170 miles). He is now close to Mbay and the Mwagne National Park. Last year at this time he was in Cameroon where he remained until 26 October. He then went on to Angola, where we saw him spend last winter.
