Wildebeest Migration

The annual wildebeest migration in Tanzania usually happens from July to September.

The migration takes place between Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park and Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve.

Thousands of wildebeest and zebras make the seasonal migration in search of food during this time, and predators such as lions take advantage of their movements.

The wildebeest migration to the western part of the Serengeti National Park takes place around June.

From around July to August the wildebeest cross the Grumeti River in Tanzania on their way to Kenya.

From around December to January they migrate back from Kenya’s Masai Mara to the Serengeti in Tanzania.
