Where can I see the wildebeest migration now? This is also another frequent quest that is asked by visitors who wish to visit Tanzania and see the wildebeest migration during their safari trip. The wildebeest migration can be seen in the Serengeti National Park in northern Tanzania, with the wildebeest safari being the key highlight of the Tanzanian wildlife safaris. The wildebeest migration does happen all year round, and this means that visitors will be able to see the wildebeest migration all day long, especially in Serengeti National Park. This has raised questions from visitors about where there is wildebeest migration now. This question can be answered by the section of the Serengeti National Park where the migration national park can be found.

The wildebeest migration happens within all the seasons and in all the sections or the sessions of the year. The various sections of the Serengeti National Park include the Northern Serengeti, the Southern Serengeti National Park, the central or western sector, which is happening within the Grumeti River and then the Ndutu area. Now where the current wildebeest migration now is determined by the time or the period of the year and this is because of the Serengeti National Park which has created the fact that the Serengeti National Park rotates around the Serengeti National Park

Please, you need to follow the timing of the wildebeest migration, which is found within the Serengeti National Park, we bring you the details below;

You need to know that November and the late November up to December is the time of the calendar when the wildebeest move from the Masai Mara National Reserve and trek back to Serengeti National Park. During this period, there are small rains in Tanzania and this makes the grass that had earlier dried resurrect and become much greener or fresh and these pastures attract the wildebeest especially when most of the female wildebeest have conceived and are pregnant which calls for them to get attracted to the grass. Therefore this period of the year in November, there is preparation for the calving season by the wildebeest animals and this calving season takes place in the Ndutu area of the Serengeti National Park which is the southern part of the Serengeti National Park. The animals will stay in this great area for the whole month and then move to the next destination and thus if you have the calendar with you, you will be able to determine exactly where the wildebeest animals are off now.

When we look at January, the wildebeest start the trekking on the southeastern side of the Serengeti National Park. This is the Ndutu area, and on its other, there is the Ngorongoro conservation area. Here the animals will spend two months, and the activity taking place here is the calving season, which means that for visitors who are interested in seeing the wildebeest calving, this is the best time. A lot of wildebeest calves are borne cloth to thousands and the process lasts for about two weeks and after the calves are born, they are heavily protected because this is the time when the predators such as the lions are also targeting the calves and also you will find a lot of predators staging in Ndutu area waiting for the newborn babies. The Ndutu area is so much favorable to the wildebeest because it features the best season and the grass which are short and nutritious attracting large herds of strong born and newly born babies.

As a result, the best times to witness the wildebeest migration in Ndutu are in January, February, and early March. From late March to early May, the wildebeest migrate to the Seronera region in the Serengeti’s central section. Wildebeest are currently distributed over the Seronera region’s Moru Kopjes, causing all visitors to come to a total halt at the Serengeti’s focal point. Other nibblers include Zebras, Gazelles, Kobs, Oribis, and Topis, to name a few. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore the Serengeti and stay in the Seronera district.

When it comes to June on your calendar, the wildebeest move to the trek further to the northern side where they will cross the Grumeti River and some of the other wildebeest animals remain here as they prepared to come to the western Serengeti National Park. The river of Grumeti is full of crocodiles and some of the wildebeest animals here lose their lives as they are crossing the river during the great migration. This movement is very risky as the wildebeest face a lot of challenges especially when it comes to the river crossing, remember the whole cycle, the wildebeest has to cross three rivers including the Grumeti river and then the Mara river

The wildebeest in July move further and cross the Mara river to the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, and these animals still pass through the Ikorongo as they extend further to the northern part of the Serengeti National Park. Importantly after feasting on their fresh pasture in Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, the wildebeest will start their journey and trek back to Serengeti National Park in October to early November. The animals move cross back through the western Loliondo and the Lobo areas then drive back to the southern side of the Serengeti National Park.

Although nature cannot be perfectly predicted when following the round schedule, it can provide the most fundamental information on the question of where the wildebeest are moving today. The climate is another deterrent and motivation for change. If the drought continues, significant changes will occur, but the movement will most likely occur even though the situation may change. Visitors need to book through Africa adventure vacations to come and have the best wildlife safari experience in Serengeti National Park in Tanzania.
