The Great Migration
The great migration is the world’s largest annual journey of huge herds of wildebeests, zebras, and other grazers as they move in a circular pattern across Serengeti National Park and Masai Mara Game Reserve. Considered one of the greatest natural wonders of the world, this spectacular event takes place throughout the year as the animals search for fresh grazing and water. Wildlife enthusiasts and travellers gather to observe this once-in-a-lifetime spectacle.

July to October
During the dry season between July and October, you have the chance to witness thousands of wildebeests and zebras as they cross the epic currents and crocodile infested waters of Mara River to the northern Serengeti plains. Although the great migration is a year-long event, this dramatic spectacle is considered the highlight of their journey.
January to March
Between January and March, massive herds of wildebeests can be found in the southern Serengeti plains, particularly in the Ndutu region, where thousands of calves are born each day. The calving season is the one of best parts of the great migration since you get to see large herds in plain sight and lurking predators in action.
