The Great Wildebeest Migration – the annual migration of giant herds of grazers across Northern Tanzania and Kenya is a truly spectacular event. Over two million wildebeest, zebras and gazelles move through the Serengeti in Tanzania and Maasai Mara ecosystems in Kenya in search of green pasture, in a regular pattern. This is surely one of the greatest wonders of the natural world


However, Wildebeest Migration isn’t really predictable as it entirely depend upon rain, with the herds constantly searching for fresh grasses. As a result, it is a challenge to predict with any confidence where the herds will be during any particular week and therefore to decide where best to stay and where to do game drive in the Serengeti so that you can fully enjoy the Migration during your safari.
