What is the Great Migration? - The Greatest Show on Earth
The Animals Migration, also known as The Great Migration, is one of nature’s most spectacular displays. Each year, millions of wildebeests and zebras embark on a journey through the Serengeti-Masai Mara ecosystem in search of food and water.
During the dry season (typically from June to October), the wildlife moves north from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. The Wildebeests are closely followed by predators such as lions, hyenas, and cheetahs, making for dramatic scenes on the savannah.
As climate patterns change and resources shift, so too does the migration route, making each year unique and offering a new experience for safari-goers.

Tips for Planning the Great Migration Africa Safari
- Plan to visit in the summer months of July through October, when the event is typically at its peak in the Maasai Mara region of Kenya.
- Make sure to book with a reputable safari company that has experienced guides and access to prime viewing locations.
- Keep an eye out for crossings of the Wildebeest and other herds over the Mara River, as these are particularly exciting to witness.
- Don’t forget to bring your camera for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to capture the action in all its glory.
- Consider adding on a hot air balloon ride for an aerial view of the herds on the move.
- Don’t forget to pack your binoculars to get a closer look at the predators and other animals in their natural habitat.
- Make sure to also take time to appreciate the smaller, but no less important, aspects of the ecosystem during your safaris such as bird watching.
- Keep in mind that the movement is a constantly changing event, so flexibility and a sense of adventure are key to making the most out of your safari experience.

9. What other animals migrate with Wildebeest?
Other herbivores, such as zebra, gazelle, and antelope, often migrate alongside Wildebeest in their herds. Predators such as lions, hyenas, and cheetahs also follow the herd in search of their next meal. There is no certainty of knowing if the migration is going to contain different species of animals because they change every year.
10. Can the Migration River Crossings be Predicted?
While the event follows a general pattern, it is impossible to predict exactly when and where the herds will cross rivers. This adds to the excitement and adventure of going on a Masai Mara safari. The migration is quite unpredictable and we would recommend staying in the mara for about 3-night for a chance of witnessing the short, but action-filled, river crossing.
