What is the Great Wildebeest Migration?

The Great Wildebeest Migration is an annual event involving the movement of millions of wildebeests, zebras, and other herbivores across the Serengeti ecosystem in Tanzania and the Maasai Mara ecosystem in Kenya. It is one of the most spectacular wildlife events in the world.

When is the best time to witness the Great Wildebeest Migration?

The timing of the migration can vary, but the best time to witness it in the Serengeti is typically between June and August when the herds are crossing the Grumeti River. In the Maasai Mara, the best time is usually between September and October during the river crossings at the Mara River.

What wildlife can I expect to see during the Great Wildebeest Migration?

Apart from the wildebeests and zebras, you can expect to see predators such as lions, cheetahs, and hyenas, as well as other herbivores like gazelles and antelopes. The migration also attracts a variety of bird species.

What type of accommodations are available during the safari?

Accommodation options vary from luxury lodges and tented camps to more budget-friendly options. Most accommodations offer comfortable amenities and are located in or near the national parks for easy access to wildlife viewing areas.

Do I need a visa to visit Tanzania for the safari?
