June/July (from central to north Serengeti, mid July the beginning of crossing)

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.

We enjoy these days in game drive in the Serengeti National Park. The Serengeti is renowned for its annual wildebeest migration and large predator population. From February to May, a herd of over a million wildebeest (gnu) migrate for the Western Corridor of the park, in search of greener pastures. The Serengeti’s other animal attractions include lion, leopard, zebra, Thompson gazelle, impala, Grant’s gazelle and buffalo. Most of the park is open swathes of grassland, broken by isolated granite kopjes (hills) and patches of acacias woodlands.
