Great wildebeest migration
Wildebeest migration in Kenya is a dramatic story. It takes place within Kenya and Tanzania and is the greatest migration show on earth.
Thousand of wildebeest and zebras migrate to greener pastures as the season changes between the open plains of Serengeti and Masai Mara and the circle of life and death continues.
Predators follows wildebeest closely, waiting for an opportunity to strike weak prey as they make their way into different territories.
The precise timing of migration changes annually and it is a very unpredictable and spontaneous natural event.
The calving season takes place in Serengeti between the months of January and mid-March before great migration begins heading towards the western Serengeti in June.
The best time to see migration is usually between June and August when wildebeest congregate and prepare to cross the famous Grumeti River. There are a few excellent tent camps in this area where you can stay to witness this natural phenomenon.
If you are in Masai Mara you can expect wildebeest to make their arrival as early as July, but they generally arrive between August and September and remain in Masai Mara between October and November. Between December and January wildebeest gradually begin their migration back towards Serengeti, Tanzania
