The Great Wildebeest Migration Safaris
Often described as one of the Seven Wonders of the World the Great Wildebeest Migration in Serengeti is one of the most talked-about and Photographic Wildlife events in history. Migration safaris offer more than the great herds though. You’ll be on the viewpoint for elephants and buffalo too, as well as antelope and smaller predators; it’s a great bird watching opportunity and you’ll also have the chance to interact with local Masaai warriors, many grazing their cattle within sight of the wildebeest.
Serengeti Wildebeest Migration
Two amazing moments on Wildebeest Migration Serengeti
Wildebeest Migration from December to March (Calving Season)
At this moment wildebeest and zebra continue to move south of Serengeti Park, mostly sideways the eastern edge of the Serengeti, searching for fresh short green grasses of the Serengeti Ndutu plains, whereas much of the migration has previously arrived at near Lake Ndutu enjoying grazing short green pasture and prepare for giving birth. Large herds dot the plains as far as the eye can see, and predators watch the herds closely.
While the migration pleats in the Serengeti South, resident animals such as lion, cheetah, and elephant are still found in the northern Serengeti, central and western grasps of the Serengeti and in the Maasai Mara, meeting around lifetime water sources such as the Grumeti and Mara rivers, but free of the usual crowds of people. Smaller groups of wildebeest and zebra can habitually have seen in the private conservancies bordering the Maasai Mara, as there is food for them to eat and survive.
Wildebeest Migration from July to October (Crossing time)
At this time wildebeest and zebra herds start their yearly crossing of the Mara River, which cuts across the northwest corner of the Serengeti and up over the Maasai Mara. They continue in the look of green pasture on the other side of the Mara River.
Whereas herds pour across the border into Kenya, some of them also stay in the northern Serengeti because of several reasons like being tired or afraid of the long journey, where river crossings, though erratic, can be perceived almost daily at this time of year.
