The Great Migration in Africa: Serengeti Safari, Masai Mara Safari Packages, and When to Go

Experience the Great Migration, an amazing natural wonder where massive concentrations of wildebeest, zebras, and other annuals migrate to find greener pastures and fresh waterholes. It is the largest movement of animals in the world, moving each year through the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya and the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania.

Waves of wildebeest and zebras make their way across the Mara, Talek, and Grumeti rivers, facing many trials, including deadly predators waiting for them on the other side. The struggle to survive is fierce and awe-inspiring. The best time to witness this epic natural wonder is approximately June to November.
