    About wildebeest Migration

    Wildebeest Migration happens every year almost 2 million wildebeest, Zebra, Topi, and antelope migrate from Serengeti Plains Tanzania to the lush rolling grasslands of the Masai Mara (meaning Masai plains) in Kenya. Many animals falling prey to African lions, leopard, cheetah not forgetting the crocodiles which lie in wait each year for that first wildebeest to cross the Grumeti and Mara Rivers.

    Each Year, the patterns change, however, see below for an idea of where the wildebeest migration will be at certain times of the year.

    Some camps are inside the reserve where it gives tourists good opportunities to experience and have fun.

    Not all camps are listed, although every camp in the Masai Mara Kenya and the Serengeti Tanzania will be in the center of the wildebeest Migration at one point during the year.

    December- March: Ndutu, Southern Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater. Over 80% of the wildebeest are busy giving birth on the lush flat grassland of ndutu, attracting a lot of attention from hungry predators, before beginning their journey all over again.

    From December- March you are most likely to catch the wildebeest migration at  Serengeti Maswa, Olakira.

    April – May- The Ndutu plains can no longer sustain the wildebeest, with newborn calves and the migration begins to move to the North in the Serengeti`s Western corridor.

    From April –May: You are most likely to catch the wildebeest migration at Olakira, Sabora, Faru Faru.

    June: The wildebeest move North again, entering the Lamai wedge in the northern Serengeti.

    In June you are most likely to catch the wildebeest migration at Lamai.

    July – October you are most likely to catch the wildebeest migration at Mara River.

    November: The arrival of eats Africa1s short rains pull the wildebeest back to Serengeti to the Northeast before making way back to the Southern Serengeti and Ndutu plains.
