The annual Great Migration of the wildebeest, which takes place every year on the Serengeti and the Maasai Mara is one of nature’s most awe-inspiring spectacles and is unsurprisingly a major draw for visitors to these world-renowned nature reserves. Where you can observe the migration depends very much on when you are going as the migration spans two countries. Kenya and Tanzania are very much driven by the rainy season, which usually runs from October to May and is at its height in April.
Serengeti National Park is located in Tanzania also serves as a World Heritage Site and has recently become a 7th world Wonder. There are more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle. Even when the migration is quiet, Serengeti National Park still offers plenty of game viewing to see from herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant, giraffes and thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle. Other than thrilling game drives you can also go on walking safaris, picnics, bush lunches and dinners and hot air balloon rides!
