Serengeti wildebeest migration tours

The world’s largest wildlife animal movement can be seen during Serengeti wildebeest migration tours and safari in Tanzania. The majority of tourists who visit Tanzania come to see the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti national park. In Tanzania, the wildebeest migration takes place in the Serengeti National Park, and several herds of the wildebeest can be seen moving around the endless plains of the Serengeti National Park. Tours in Tanzania are well planned and organized across the Mara-Serengeti ecosystem, offering you the opportunity to see the wildebeest migration, which can be seen from the Serengeti national park. Wildebeest safari tours are done in the Masai Mara national reserve in Kenya for a tour of the wildebeest. Please come and enjoy the wildebeest animals, which are outstanding. During the wildebeest migration tour, you will be able to see more than 2 million wildebeest animals in combination with the zebras. Gazelles can be seen moving around the park. Other fantastic safari predators, such as leopards and lions, can also be seen near the endless plains when the wildebeest migrate.

Where to see the wildebeest migration during a continuous year.

Throughout many seasons and in various places, the wildebeest migration occurs. Although the wildebeests’ movements are unpredictable and subject to variation for a variety of reasons, they generally move in a clockwise manner, hence the name Serengeti wildebeest migration tour. Check out the wildebeest movement by month below for an experience of witnessing them during a tour;

January, February, and March: The calving season occurs in January, February, and March. The Serengeti National Park’s southern region, as well as the vicinity of Ndutu, experience the calving season. At this time of the year, almost 8,000 calves are born, and predators are also visible on the plains where the wildebeests are feeding. When doing a safari that follows the wildebeest migration between January and March, there are several camps to choose from.

April-May: You can observe the wildebeest migration that occurs in April and May in the middle region of Serengeti National Park. The wildebeest calves are significantly stronger at this time of year when rain is also obtained. The Moru kopjes and Simba kopjes, two of the Serengeti National Park’s rock outcrops, are where the wildebeest herds can be found in the center of the park. During safaris in the Serengeti National Park, lions can also be observed near the kopjes. Due to the rains, the Serengeti National Park sees fewer visitors in April and May. As a result, the lodges offer cheaper prices, and safaris are also reasonably priced.

June, July and August: The Grumeti River, a crossing place for the wildebeest migration, attracts the wildebeests around June. The western region of Serengeti National Park is currently open for safaris. The wildebeests keep moving northward through Serengeti National Park to the Mara River, where they make their second river crossing. Nile crocodiles can be spotted trying to eat the wildebeests crossing the river into Kenya during the thrilling river crossings along the Mara River.

Booking safaris in advance is advised to increase your chances of seeing the wildebeest migration and river crossings at this busy time of year. While visiting Tanzania, many tourists are interested in seeing this migration, so lodges frequently have full occupancy from June to August.

September and October: In the southwestern region of Kenya, in between the Masai Mara national reserve and the Giraffe Center, you can watch the wildebeest migration in September and October. The ideal place to go on safari at this time of year to watch the migration is in Kenya, which is why there are Serengeti wildebeest migration tours. The Masai Mara reserve in Kenya, a place where the big five, including elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos, and buffalos, can be spotted on a trip, also provides amazing wildlife watching throughout the year.

November to December: The Serengeti National Park’s northern grasslands are where the wildebeest herds can be seen in November and December. The wildebeest migration from Kenya’s Masai Mara Reserve to Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park occurs in November when it also starts to rain.
