The annual wildebeest migration is one of the most remarkable natural events that occur in Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. This phenomenon is a spectacular display of movement and survival, where millions of wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles travel from Serengeti to Masai Mara in Kenya in search of fresh grazing lands. The best time to witness the migration in Serengeti depends on your preferences and interests, as well as the weather patterns in the region.
The wildebeest migration usually takes place in two distinct seasons: the dry season (June to October) and the rainy season (November to May). Here are some tips on the best time to witness the migration in Serengeti.
The calving season in Serengeti is between late January and early March, when thousands of wildebeest give birth to their young. This period is ideal for wildlife enthusiasts and photographers, as there are many opportunities to witness the birth of wildebeest calves and the predators that hunt them.
River Crossing Season
The river crossing season in Serengeti is between July and September when the herds cross the Grumeti and Mara Rivers in search of better grazing lands. This period is ideal for those who want to witness the dramatic crossings and predator-prey interactions.
The shoulder seasons (May to June and October to November) are also good times to witness the migration in Serengeti. During these periods, the crowds are fewer, and the prices are generally lower. The landscape is also greener and more lush during the rainy season, making it an excellent time for photography.
In conclusion, the best time to witness the migration in Serengeti depends on your interests, preferences, and budget. Whether you want to witness the calving season, the river crossing season, or the shoulder seasons, there are opportunities throughout the year to experience this remarkable natural event in Tanzania.
