About Great Wildebeest Migration

The great migration of wildebeests spanning across Tanzania is one of the most phenomenal natural wildlife events on the earth.

Millions of wildebeests and zebras migrate from Serengeti plains to Masai mara in search of fresh grassland and gets back to Serengeti every year. This great migration can be witnessed for around 9 months. To witness one of these Serengeti facts, follow the migration.

January to March: In the rains, the wildebeests are scattered over the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Conservation Area

April: Streams began to dry when the rain cease, now wildebeests concentrate on remaining green areas and form thousand strong herds to migrate in search of food.

May-early July: These herds cross northwest into Serengeti and Kenyas Massai Mara.

September – October: The last Wildebeests leave the Serengeti.

November – December: The herds begin to move south again expecting rain, crossing the heart of the Serengeti.
