The Great Migration safari is the annual movement of vast numbers of grazers especially the Wildebeest Migration which always outnumber other grazers like zebras, elands, Thomson’s gazelle, etc. In search of green grazing pastures and freshwater. The main purpose of this safari package is to track down the route of migration around the year so wherever the Migration will be we will take you there.
The general rule of Wildebeest Migration is driven by number of reasons including availability of green grazing pastures, water, Calving Season etc. Short rain seasons in North Tanzania starts early or late November during this period south and east Serengeti especially seronera area and Ndutu Plains there are widespread of wildebeest, zebras, Thomson’s gazelles etc. this best describes Ndutu Migration. Starting from January to March, Ndutu Plains will have the major concentration of grazers which are ready to bring their new-borns on the plains around seven thousand (7000) to eight thousand (8000) of wildebeest new-born are born daily this make the total of around 400,000 new-borns during this period also known as Calving Season.
Furthermore, wild animals like Hyena, lions, and Vulture’s target the new-born in this period and there’s constant cries for help for new-borns and wildebeest mothers. Starting April, the Wildebeest Migration takes to the North Serengeti in search of green pasture and water, from May, The Great Migration is all packed in the North of Serengeti where there’s abundant of grazing areas, black rhino territory of Moru kopjes and west Seronera are busy with large numbers of grazers. Around June, the Serengeti Migration is in the Western corridor where the Wildebeest and other grazers build up in numbers before crossing Grumeti River where large crocodiles will be waiting for their annual feast.
Nevertheless, from July up to August the Serengeti migration will now be heading further north towards the great obstacle of Mara River Crossing. September the Serengeti migration in north takes its toll to the most spectacle game viewing phenomena of Mara River Crossing, leaping of wildebeest into Mara River caused by panic and confusion present a chance for Mara River crocodiles to be welcomed on the feast approximately 250,000 wildebeest and 30,000 zebras die during Migration due to predation, thirsty, and exhaustion.
