The Great Migration Serengeti – The Guide to Great Wildebeest Migration

Tailor-made Wildebeest Migration Safaris with Serengeti Migration Safaris offers the ultimate guide to the great Wildebeest Migration in Serengeti National Park.

The Great Wildebeest Migration Safaris: Wildebeest Migration in Serengeti National Park – Considered one of the Seven Wonders of Africa, the Serengeti migration is the biggest migration of terrestrial animals on the planet.  The Wildebeest Migration in Serengeti is a natural event that attracts more tourists who embark on a Serengeti Migration Safari during the peak of the annual Great Migration than at any other time of the year. Around the same time, the mass wildebeest migration starts in the Ngorongoro conservation area moving in a clockwise direction.

Through the Serengeti, they move in a group towards the Masai village. The Migration cuts across the borders of Tanzania and Kenya. Thousands of zebras precede the massive million wildebeest migration and shortly thousands of antelopes will follow the wildebeest procession.

The Wildebeest Migration Safari takes place in phases with the first phase starting at the beginning of the year between January and March. Apart from the fact that it’s a rainy season, it is also the season in which calves are born within the herd.

Over 400,000 calves are born in the weeks before the annual migration and by February the animals can often be seen grazing when the rains end towards the end of May they begin to move towards the areas around the Grumeti River.

They will stay here until about June before they cross the Grumeti and Mara rivers in July. The river crossings offer the most spectacular and often brutal sightseeing when the weakest and the oldest of the herds fall prey to waiting crocodiles.

By the start of August, the animals start arriving in Kenya where they will stay until the rains come again most probably in early November, and migrate back to the grassy southeastern planes from which they initially migrated to start the process of calving. In total, the animals will walk for over 800 kilometers and thousands will die from thirst, exhaustion, hunger, and predators during the journey.
