SERENGETI WILDEBEEST MIGRATION 10 DAYS
Where to see the Great Migration
The backdrop of this dramatic spectacle is the Greater Serengeti-Mara Ecosystem – an area that covers both Kenya and Tanzania.
The northernmost reaches of the great migration’s circuitous route cross the Masai Mara in Kenya before heading southwards through the Serengeti in Tanzania, as far south as to border on the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
Northern Serengeti & Masai Mara
Mid-June to November
Northern Serengeti, Tanzania
From mid-June to November, the great herds of wildebeest gather on the banks of the Mara River in the Northern Serengeti, ready to brave the crocodile-infested waters and hungry predators on the other side. Dramatic, exciting and chaotic game viewing awaits as the wildebeest thunder across in their millions and the northern Serengeti is transformed into a pulsing hub of activity.
Eastern & Southern Serengeti
December to March
Eastern Serengeti, Tanzania
Just like the south, the rains bring new life to the Eastern (Namiri) Plains of the Serengeti, and the dry savannah is transformed into a carpet of fresh, green grass, drawing the great herds of wildebeest. The plains become the center stage for explosive action as big cats feast on the hundreds of thousands of wildebeest that stretch as far as the eye can see.
Southern Serengeti and Ndutu, Tanzania
The vast grassland plains of the Southern Serengeti are the favored birthing grounds of the migrating wildebeest. With the new addition of vulnerable calves, predators such as lion, leopards, and cheetahs are not far behind to profit from the numerous newborns.
The herds and calves move as far south as the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (but not within the Crater itself) to graze on the lush new grass of the plains.
Serengeti Wildebeests Migration is a display of natural wonders with over two million wildebeests, zebras, and antelope traveling over 450 miles across the plain to ensure their survival, unaware that there's the danger presented by the stalking lions and cheetahs among other predators of the wildlife. Witness huge crocodiles of the Mara River as they wait for the herbivorous to cross the swollen Mara river and enter into Masai Mara Game Reserve from Serengeti National Park.
The wildebeest migration river crossing in August moves north, passing through the Lobo area (north of Central Serengeti National Park) and the Wagakuria area (remote northern Serengeti National Park along the Mara River) en route to Kenya's Masai Mara Game Reserve.
