Serengeti Wildebeest Migration

Serengeti Wildebeest Migration 8days Safari Package

Tanzania Family Safari, Serengeti Wildebeest Migration 8days offers incomparable game viewing with a chance to witness the Serengeti Wildebeest Migration crossing the Mara River, a visit to Tarangire National Park famous for its baobab trees, and game drives in the Ngorongoro Crater, with evening relaxation at excellent quality authentic tented camps in the African bush. The best time to do this tour is January to March, (Curving ) – Sourthen Serengeti – Ndutu Area./   July to October Crossing Mara River Northern Serengeti


January is the easiest month to predict where Serengeti Wildebeest Migration will be.  In February we call it Calving season a period when wildebeest, zebra and other migratory animals give birth to their offspring. Once the calves are born, the herds don’t move much. The chance of witnessing a wildebeest birth is high. Predator interaction is also very likely, as lion and leopard move into the region to prey on young and vulnerable calves.

In March can be fairly wet. Grasslands are lush and green, providing much needed sustenance to the large wildebeest herds. The herds move slowly and predictably, as the one-month old calves are fed constantly. The glut of calves make easy prey for predators. Expect lots of lion and leopard encounters.

August is your best month to see the dramatic Mara River crossings in the Serengeti or Maasai Mara. August is a hot and humid month as the dry season kicks into overdrive. The wildebeest herds will continue their search for lush, greener grass and by doing so, attempt to cross the dangerous, and crocodile infested water of the Mara River.

September is similar to August. This month offers more hot and dry weather, as the dry season continues in the Serengeti and Maasai Mara. Most of the wildebeest have crossed the Mara River, and the majority of the herds will be in the Greater Maasai Mara area, eating the lush green grass resources before venturing north towards the private conservancies (Mara North, Olare Orok). September is an easy month to predict where the herds will be. You can still stay in the Serengeti early in the month, but it’s safer to stay on the Masai Mara side to view the last of the Mara River crossings
