The Wildebeest Migration
East Africa Wildebeest migration is once in a life time event one should not plan to miss when experiencing an African safari. It is amazing how these wildebeest innocent act of searching for green posture for their day to day survival could be turned into the world’s greatest show!!
Why Wildebeest Migration?
There is nowhere in the world you may witness the herd of more than 2 millions animals together so determined to make it to the other side of the fence, except for Serengeti National park. I call these animals determined because they have to cross the Maasai mara river which is so full of crocodiles who takes joy in preying on easy lunch, yet for those who make it to the other side they have to encounter predators such as lions, hyenas, leopards, cheater and many other.
When is it happening?
January-March: Breeding season especially around February and spread west across the Serengeti plains.
April-May: Migration is heading North Serengeti , you can find these animals in the are mnamed Moru kopje and western soronera
June : In June the Migration is crossing the maasai mara river from Tanzania which is dry to Kenya where they are to find green pastures for their survival.
July –August: Mostly the migration is in Kenya scattered in grumeti reserve and Ikorongo.
September: In September you may catch the migration again crossing the same river from Kenya, where dry season began to Tanzania where there id green pastures for them.
October –December: Migration is heading south through western Loliondo area and Serengeti National park’s Lobo area.
NOTE: the Migration calendar may change according to climate change that is the delay or the hastening of the rain since the sole purpose of the migration is the lookout for green pasture.
