East Africa is without a doubt one of the most magical areas in Africa so much so that we have opened our own Operational offices in Tanzania. We know that the biggest highlight when travelling to East Africa is to witness the annual migration – this occurs when the wildebeest migrate in the thousands through the Serengeti and the Masai Mara National Parks. The last calculated number was just over 1.5 million wildebeest!
Latest Wildebeest Migration update from Jenman East Africa: In the past 2 weeks the rains have subsided in the Ndutu and Serengeti Plains making the game-viewing exceptional at the moment. There are hundreds of wildebeest scattered in the Ndutu Area, South Serengeti as well as around the Goli Area in the Serengeti Plains. At the moment the best place to see the migration is in the Serengeti National Park where you can also see lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino easily there too. Our recommendation is to join our East African Migration Discoverer safari where we will follow the path of the migration and take you to other highlights such as the Ngorongoro Crater, the Tarangire National Park and the Lake Manyara National Park where wildlife sightings are also phenomenal.
If you are considering visiting East Africa to witness the migration, go for it! There should be wonderful sightings in the Serengeti as well as the Ngorongoro Crater and even in the Tarangire National Park and Manyara National Park.. watch this space for updates!
From January to March: It is typical at this time of year for the calves to start dropping on the Southern Serengeti Plains, however, due to the weather conditions the majority of the herd has split up in different directions. A large part of the herd has headed straight for the Central Serengeti Plains whilst the vast migration stretched between – Nyarboro Hills and Rongai Hills. This means that we did not get to see them as one big migration moving through the plains and it can be surprisingly difficult to find them. Some of the herd has already started dropping their calves and they typically do this in this area because once the rain comes they are close to Lake Ndutu where the new calves can graze on alkaline enriched grasses. This will give them the strength to begin the long journey up North. Seeing as the weather plays a huge aspect in these animals lives we await the rains that are inevitable before the herd will move on.
From April to May: the wildebeest migration starts to move towards the central region of the Serengeti National Park.
From June to July: the wildebeest migration moves north of the Serengeti with some of the migration moving towards the Western Corridor and crossing the Grumeti River.
From August to October: the wildebeest migrations moves along the Kenya-Tanzania border, along the banks of the Mara River, Masai Mara National Park. At the beginning of November they start heading south.
From November to December: The wildebeest are still roaming around the Serengeti National Park, some are moving towards the central area and others are moving to the western part of the Serengeti (Kirawira region). One of our East Africa guides, Charmy, is currently in the Serengeti with clients and told us that the Serengeti is amazing this week – the weather is cool, the nature is beautiful and you don’t even have to drive very far looking for animals.
