Where to See the Great Kenya Tanzania Wildebeest Migration Holiday

The migration route is sometimes thought of as a set circuit that occurs between Tanzania’s Serengeti plains in the south and Kenya’s Maasai Mara in the north between May and December each year. But that isn’t exactly the whole story. Don’t let orderly maps claiming to predict the pathways fool you. Since this is a completely natural process that depends on weather, environmental factors, and the animals themselves, the timing and route that’s well-known—from the southern Serengeti through the Western Corridor up to the Maasai Mara then back to the start through the Loliondo and Lobo area—is more of an estimation than a reliable roadmap.

Best Time to do Kenya Tanzania wildebeest migration holiday

The first animals usually start to set out across the Serengeti in search of more grass and a dependable water supply in April. Over the following months, they’ll encounter countless obstacles—from predators to river crossings—on their hundreds-of-miles-long trek. Here’s a breakdown of their tentative travel schedule, so you can plan your own.

December to April

The southern Serengeti is the place to be during these four months when the wildebeest are mostly staying put. Depending on rainfall, herds can be seen between the Ndutu area and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, which is just southeast of Serengeti National Park. Around February, wildebeest mothers give birth to more than 500,000 calves in a two- to three-week period, so if seeing baby wildebeest or predatory action is a priority, this could be the best time for you to go.

Fun Fact: Within 10 minutes of birth, wildebeest calves are on their feet, so they’re ready to move when the herd decides to head out.

May and June

Once the rainy season is over, the south and east plains of the Serengeti dry out, prompting the beginning of the migration. This usually starts in April or May, and herds begin to move north and west, although not all as one group. Some will head to the Western Corridor and the Grumeti River (where you might spot a crocodile) before proceeding north, and some may also go up through the Loliondo area or through the Seronera area and into Lobo.

July to November

This is traditionally thought of as the best season to view the migration. Between July and August, the wildebeest move into Kenya’s Maasai Mara, crossing the Mara River in large numbers. These river crossings are among the most sought-after moments of the migration. If seeing a river crossing is at the top of your bucket list, this when you should plan your trip to catch a herd tromping through the water.

October to November

It’s not over yet! The migration starts to work its way south into Tanzania, so there will be plenty to see in the southern Maasai Mara in Kenya and in Northern Tanzania.

Mt. Kenya & Kilimanjaro Trekking Safari Packages

Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing Packing list – Practical and Light

Practical mountain gear determines warmth, temperatures, and safety on climb and thus the need to choose good quality equipment that is dependable and flexible under conditions of extreme variety

Proper equipment is extremely important to the success, enjoyment, comfort and safety of your trip. Please bring the following items for your climb. Porters will carry up to 22 lbs (10Kilogrames) of your personal gear, no more! If you pack by this list, you will meet the weight limit. If you wish to have additional porter support, we can accommodate you. If you have any questions, or would like the extra support, please let us know well in advance.

Mount Kenya Adventures GUIDES believes that all mountain travel equipment should follow two simple tenets: Lightweight and Functional. Functional equipment determines how warm, dry, and safe you will be, so always choose equipment that is of good quality, is dependable, and is adaptable to a variety of extreme conditions.

Clothing impacts not only your comfort but also your safety. Always be critical of the quality and the proper fit of your clothing. Cotton clothing must be avoided because it dries very slowly and is a poor insulator when wet. Instead, choose wool or synthetic fabrics that “wick” the sweat and moisture away from your skin.

  • Base Layer
  • Manages moisture and keeps perspiration away from your skin. (Poly pro, capilene, driclime)

Soft Shell

Should be a durable, comfortable, insulating and wind/water resistant layer that breathes well. The main Soft shell fabrics are Polartec Wind Pro, Gore Wind stopper N2S, Schoeller; each clothing manufacturer has their own. 200 weight fleece can be substituted for our Softshell recommendations but is not as versatile with how it may be used when layering.

  • Hard Shell
  • Windproof, waterproof and breathable. (e.g. Gore-Tex, or similar)

Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing Packing list – Insulating Layer

Should be down-fill or synthetic-fill and fit over all layers.

When deciding what to pack, remember to bring enough clothes and accessories to ensure your safety and comfort, while not over-burdening yourself with items you probably won’t use.

  • Sleeping Gear
  • 4 season sleeping bag and a liner: night-time temperatures can be as low as -10 degrees c so bring a warm bag.
  • Sleeping pad: full-length Therma-Rest or equivalent.

These animals include the African elephant, lion, leopard, Cape buffalo, and rhinoceros. Kenya, Tanzania and South Africa are optimal for that up-close and personal encounter with Africa’s Big Five and witnessing these amazing creatures in their natural habitat.

Big Five Africa Safari Tour Adventure

The Big 5 are Africa’s undisputed super stars and the reason tourists set out eagerly on dawn and dusk game-viewing excursions. There can be no argument that giraffe and zebra are prettier creatures than buffalo, or that cheetah can be easier to find than leopard, but seeing any of the Big 5 living wild and free in their natural habitats remains an unforgettable thrill at the top of most travelers’ safari tick list.

The term ‘Big 5’ was originally coined in the 19th Century by big game hunters who listed African elephant, Cape buffalo, African lion, leopard and rhinoceros as the five most dangerous creatures to hunt on foot in Africa. Fortunately, the Big 5 are now protected in national parks and private game reserves, and the term is synonymous with photographic safaris. Today’s tourists contribute directly to the conservation of these magnificent animals across encroachments like poaching, wildlife trafficking and habitat destruction.
