The Serengeti Migration, also known as the Great Wildebeest Migration, is one of the most remarkable natural events in the world. It takes place in the Serengeti ecosystem, which spans across northern Tanzania and southwestern Kenya.

The migration involves the movement of millions of wildebeest, zebras, and other herbivores in search of fresh grazing and water. The continuous movement of the migration is driven by a seasonal quest for fresh water and pasture influenced by the rains, following a generally clockwise path.

The peak of the great migration occurs in the national park from April to June, coinciding with the conclusion of the long rains. Afterward, it heads north towards Kenya’s Maasai Mara Game Reserve, reaching there in August. In September and October, the migration is predominantly centered in Masai Mara.

Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park: Established in 1951, the Serengeti National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is a crucial part of the larger Serengeti ecosystem. It offers visitors the chance to witness incredible wildlife, landscapes, and the Great Migration

The Serengeti is a vast ecosystem located in East Africa, primarily in Tanzania, with portions extending into Kenya. It is one of the most famous and diverse wildlife regions in the world, known for its stunning landscapes, rich biodiversity, and iconic animal migrations

The word "Serengeti" comes from the Maasai term "siringet," translating to "the place where the land runs on forever." True to its name, the Serengeti provides boundless vistas featuring rolling grasslands, acacia woodlands, rocky outcrops (known as kopjes), and the expansive Serengeti Plains. Notably, the Serengeti holds the prestigious status of being a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is recognized as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa.

The Serengeti national park spans approximately 30,000 square kilometers (12,000 square miles) and includes grasslands, savannas, woodlands, and riverine forests. The Serengeti National Park in Tanzania is at the heart of this ecosystem.

Balancing conservation with the needs of these communities is an ongoing challenge, and sustainable development practices are essential to maintaining the delicate balance between humans and wildlife.

Best Time to Visit Serengeti
