While on your Tanzania Safari we will tell you which the best time for watching the Wildebeest Migration is:

  • July – October: The Best Safari in Tanzania is experienced during the dry summer period when the wildebeest are in the northern Serengeti plains, and you get a chance of viewing thousands of mammals crossing the great Mara River.
  • December – March: Another important period that helps save your Tanzania Safari Prices is the period between December and March which is the calving season in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
  • The main highlight of this period is the river crossings and a great time to see the herds congregate on the dramatic sweeping plains of the south.
  • The only time of year when you are almost guaranteed to see the big herds all together in February as the mammals always come south for calving season. 
  • Off Seasons for witnessing the Migration: The months when it’s difficult to spot the herds in Serengeti are - November, April, May, and June as the migration is “in-between” locations and as such these months are slightly transitional times to see the herds.

Some Interesting Wildebeest Migration facts:

  • The sole purpose of why the wildebeest migrate around the Serengeti and into the Masai Mara is for following the rainfall.
  • Making up for the Best Tanzania Safari Tours the wildebeests begin their cycle for calving season in the Southern Serengeti area of Ndutu from December – March.
  • After the beginning of Monsoon, the Great Wildebeest Migration begins as the herd heads north-west into the woodlands of the hilly country west of Seronera towards Lake Victoria.
  • This period is marked as the annual rut as the herds consolidate in the woodlands, with half a million cows mated in less than a month and on the plains of the Serengeti’s Western Corridor.
  • This is followed by the herd heading north following the rain into Kenya and the Maasai Mara Game Reserve.
  • This is exactly where the crossing phase takes place that you can witness on your Tanzania Safari Tours.
  • The rivers that come along their path are the Mbalangeti and Grumeti, located in Serengeti along with Mara in Kenya.
  • After crossing over the Mara River, the wildebeest reach the grasslands of the Maasai Mara, where they spend several months feeding and fattening once more and taking advantage of the scattered distribution of green pastures and isolated rainstorms.
  • This is the time when they get attacked a lot by the predators like the lions and by the crocodiles during the crossing phase.
  • The wildebeest start heading south again when the first of the short rains are falling on the Serengeti’s short-grass plains, by late October.

This is the beginning of the calving season and the closing of the cycle of the Great Wildebeest Migration.

After much research into companies, my fiance and I decided on Jerry Tanzania Tours. It was the best experience of our lives and we are so grateful to Regan, Brighton (our two guides), our cook, and our many porters who helped us to achieve one of our dreams.
