Feb/ March ( calving season at Ndutu)

The great Serengeti wildebeest migration is the movement of enormous numbers of the Serengeti’s wildebeest, accompanied by outsized numbers of zebra, and lesser numbers of Grant’s gazelle, Thompson’s gazelle, eland and impala, this is a truly remarkable wildlife show and worth planning for.

They move in an annual pattern which is fairly predictable, they are migrating throughout the year, constantly seeking fresh grazing and, it’s now thought, better quality water. The exact timing of the Serengeti wildebeest migration is wholly reliant upon the rainfall patterns each year. The animals have to cross both the western corridor in the Grumeti River heads to the north, Lobo area, meets up with Kenya’s Maasai Mara Reserve Mara River where crocodile lie in wait; it is the part of the migration route that provides the drama that is seen in the photograph.
