10 Days Guided Wildebeest Great Migration Safari Holiday is like no other event ever seen. 10 Days Guided Wildebeest Great Migration Safari Holiday attracts thousands of nature enthusiasts, filmmakers and photographers who come from around the world to witness one of Africa’s most dazzling cycles of life. The Annual Africa Wildebeest Migration Safari from the Serengeti in Tanzania to Masai Mara in Kenya is one of the greatest natural spectacles in the world.

The wildebeest migration in East Africa is the largest land migration of mammals in the world. No other experience compares in scale to the huge numbers of incredible animals that constitute this migration. It’s a seething, beautiful mass of movement unlike anything you’ve ever seen.  The vast majority of the Migration occurs in Tanzania’s Serengeti and the short period that it moves into Kenya’s Masai Mara coincides with peak safari season. Both countries offer equally thrilling – but different – aspects of the Migration. The overlapping portion of their journey is the crossing of the Mara River at various points, which we explore in more detail below.

Guided Wildebeest Migration Safari

Nowhere in the world is there a movement of animals as immersing as the wildebeest migration, over two million animals migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the greener pastures of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya during August through to October in search of green pasture, in a regular pattern. This is surely one of the greatest wonders of the natural world. From the Serengeti in Tanzania, to the Masai Mara in Kenya.

Each year, almost two million wildebeest and 20 000 plains game migrate from Tanzania’s Serengeti to the south of Kenya’s Masai Mara in search of green grazing grounds and life-giving water. This movement is dictated by the seasons and where the rains are, the wildebeest are not far behind. This journey from north to south covers almost 3000 kilometers and is virtually endless. This great spectacle of nature is an iconic safari option for avid travelers, nature lovers and those who want a little more from their African experience. The wildebeest migrate around the Serengeti and into the Masai Mara for the sole purpose of following the rainfall. For their calving from December – March they always begin their cycle in the Southern Serengeti area of Ndutu and follow wherever the grass is greener.

What to Expect on 10 Days Guided Wildebeest Great Migration Safari Holiday
Guided Wildebeest Great Migration Safari Holidays, Wildebeest Migration Safaris

The wildebeest migration covers a huge area of the Serengeti-Masai Mara ecosystem, and despite the varying weather, putting together a migration specific itinerary is not as difficult as one may at first think. However, the migration does tend to follow the same, or a similar, pattern year after year, which means that you can have a good idea of where to locate yourself. Each area is good at different times of the year, the Serengeti seeing the migration for around nine months and the Mara for just four months.

The river crossing is one of the main events that people wish to see; this is where thousands of wildebeest battle with each other, and the crocks, to move on to the best grazing plains. The first of these crossings is that of the Grumeti River in Western Serengeti, which happens around mid-May to June. The second, and perhaps the most famous, is that of the Mara River during August and September.

The crossings are hugely exciting to witness, and a must if you want some action! However, the mass herds move through the Serengeti-Masai Mara ecosystem throughout the year, and therefore traveling at any time of the year will provide viewing of vast amounts of game. February, for example, is a fantastic time to travel to the Southern Serengeti as this is the time of year when the thousands of wildebeest begin to give birth; this is an incredible sight to witness, and the big cats are often seen in the area at this time.
