The Best Long Tanzania Safaris:
The Great Migration
The great migration is without doubt the main highlight of every long Tanzania safaris holiday. Wildebeest migration in Tanzania is the world’s biggest single movement of wildlife usually experienced once a year. Observe over 2 million wildebeests accompanied by thousands of gazelles, elands, zebras as they move in search for pasture and drinking water.
During the great migration, wildebeests and other grazers are trailed by predators hence a great opportunity to view most of them. Tanzania’s wildebeest migration is experienced while you are on your long Tanzania safaris in Serengeti National Park, a home to endless plains.
The wildebeest trek through the South-Central Seronera outskirts into the Western Corridor and Grumeti River. They arrive around April, May and reside up to June then they begin their trek to the Masai Mara National Reserve crossing via the Mara River. July/August, the wildebeests begin returning.
When returning, they head to Lobo and Loliondo in Eastern part of Tanzania and this is usually in October, November. December to March is calving period and they settle at Southern Ndutu.
The annual rains and renewal of pasture early or late are some key factors that guide nature lovers in timing the migration. But, it is a great experience worth every effort, penny and time.
