The Great Migration

The Great Migration in Serengeti refers to the annual movement of thousands of wildebeests, zebras and antelopes who move northwards to Maasai Mara in Kenya. The animals do move in search for food and water. The reason why zebra and wildebeest graze in harmony together is because they each eat different parts of the same type of grass. It is among the most sceneric and wonderful views on earth.

Great Migration Timing

December through February is the time for giving birth. By March or April, the area has dried out and are forced to move northwards towards Lake Victoria for mating season. Afterwards they move to the Maasai Mara in June or July and is where people see the migration across the Mara River. The best time to witness the event is from July to September.
