The Great Wildebeest Migration is the largest animal migration in the world. Every year, more than 2 million animals (wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle) migrate in a clockwise direction across the ecosystems of the Serengeti (Tanzania) and the Masai Mara (Kenya).
The Great Migration is present all year round and can be enjoyed anytime during your visit to Tanzania. From the months of December to March it offers exceptional predator encounters in Tanzania's Southern Serengeti and Ndutu Conservation Area in Ngorongoro as this is the calving season for the wildebeest and newborns make for easier targets. In April and May, the migration will be heading west towards Grumeti Game reserve in the Western region of Serengeti. Around June they are in Grumeti where you can witness the first river crossings along the Grumeti River. By July, the herds are heading north into the Northern Serengeti where the wildebeest make their first river crossing of Mara River, and take their chances against the waiting crocodiles. From August to November, the herds cross over into Kenya’s Masai Mara and back into the Serengeti moving southwards again where the animals brace themselves for the next calving season and predator attacks.
