8 Days Migration Calvary Safari

Every year, the vast heads of wildebeest embark on a long –distance migration that coincide with the annual rainfall patterns and grass growth. Following the short rainy season in November, the herds of wildebeest arrive to the short-grass plains of the Serengeti around November. The short-grass plains are located in the area east and south of the Seronera, around Ndutu and the northern Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Herds of wildebeest and zebra can be seen across these plains as they feed o the nutrient rich grasses. The majority of the wildebeest calve around February. They normally stay in the Area till April and then start moving west toward to the Western Corridor of the Serengeti National Park. Our 8-days Migration Wildlife safaris, tours, holidays and travel packages, have been designed specifically to focus on and to increase your chance to see the Wildebeest Calvary Migration; we have designed the itinerary to visit South Serengeti and Central Serengeti National Park where the majority of the wildebeest migration can normally be found from December through to March.
