Migration safaris in Africa | Packages & Itineraries

Serengeti Wildebeest Migration Safari is a display of natural wonders with over two million wildebeests, zebras, and antelope.  Traveling over 450 miles across the plain to ensure their survival.  Unaware that there’s danger presented by the stalking lions and cheetahs among other predators of the Serengeti Wildebeest Migration Safari. Witness wildlife huge crocodiles of the Mara River as they wait for the herbivorous to cross.  Swollen Mara river and enter into Masai Mara Game Reserve from Serengeti National Park.

The wildebeest migration river crossing in August moves north. Passing through the Lobo area (north of Central Serengeti National Park).  The Wagakuria area (remote northern Serengeti National Park along the Mara River).  En-route to Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve.

Each year millions of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle move across the Serengeti plains in search of green grass and fresh water. The southern and northern plains of the Serengeti are the two main feeding grounds for the herds. The animals are constantly on the move between these two areas each year. Their location can be roughly predicted at a given time of the year, although this is dependent on rainfall patterns.

The great wildebeest migration is one of the most phenomenal natural spectacles in the world. It is an annual movement by millions of wildebeest, accompanied by large numbers of zebra, Grant’s gazelle, Thompson’s gazelle, elands and impalas across the greater Masai Mara-Serengeti ecosystem.

From July to September the Mara welcomes the Great Migration of thousands of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti in Tanzania to Masai Mara in Kenya. During the wildebeest migration, you will witness how the constant battle for survival makes the Migration Season a particularly exhilarating time to visit Basecamp Explorer Kenya.
