THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH: THE GREAT MIGRATION
WHERE DOES IT HAPPEN? TANZANIA & KENYA -SAME ECOSYSTEM
From the Serengeti in Tanzania, to the Masai Mara in Kenya, the Great Wildebeest Migration 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.
No wildlife event on the planet rivals Africa’s Great Migration for sheer drama. Each year the huge herds make a great circuit across the Serengeti Plains, following the grass that sprouts with the seasonal rains. To witness the migration is on many a wildlife lover’s bucket list. But it’s crucial to choose the right way to experience this phenomenon – because all Great Migration safaris are not the same!
WHAT TO EXPECT EACH MONTH OF THE YEAR
Many people think that the Great Migration only happens once a year, but the migration is in fact an all-year-round event — with each time of year offering a unique wildlife experience.
Select a month in our migration cycle calendar to find out what each month offers in terms of weather, wildlife, migratory movements, predator interactions, river crossings and where the best place to stay is, to get the most out of your trip to see the great wildebeest migration.
