Great Wildebeest Migration
What is the Great animal Migration?
The Great Wildebeest Migration is one of the “Seven New Wonders of the World”. It is the largest herd movement of animals on the planet. The great animal migration is an ongoing movement of animals that takes place throughout the year. Over two million animals migrate in a clockwise direction between Tanzania and Kenya. The main destinations are the Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Loliondo Game Managed Area, Grumeti Reserve in Tanzania and Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya.
This epic journey from north to south stretches about 3000 kilometres.
When is the best time to see the Great Wildebeest Migration?
The Great Wildebeest Migration can be enjoyed all year round. January, February and March it is calving season for the wildebeest in the Serengeti of Tanzania. It is also a time for exceptional predator encounters as the newborns make for easier targets. By July, the herds are heading north into the central Serengeti where the wildebeest make their first river crossing and take their chances against the waiting crocodiles. In August, the herds cross over the Mara River into Kenya and the Masai Mara Game Reserve. Towards the end of the year, the migrating herd moves southwards back into Tanzania’s Serengeti where the cycle starts again for the next year.
