Great Migration Holidays

  • Wildebeest migration, Kenya

The Migration  -  Game On!

The Great Migration has been dubbed the greatest show on earth as over a million wildebeest, 200,000 zebras and thousands of Thomson gazelles graze their way across the Serengeti and Masai Mara of Tanzania and Kenya following the more fertile mineral-rich grass. Dark unending charcoal lines of these beasts darken the plains of the Serengeti from January to March before heading west and north to the far flung corners of the park. Towards the middle of March they start to drop their foals by the thousand providing easy meals ‘to go’ for the lions, hyenas, cheetahs and leopards. In late May they congregate along the banks of the Seronera river in Tanzania before starting their journey North across the Grumeti River, along the western corridor of the Serengeti until they reach the banks of the Mara and Talek Rivers in the Masai Mara.

The crossings of the Mara and Talek rivers is one of the most thrilling wildlife shows on earth as, en masse, these animals attempt to cross the crocodile infested rivers before running the gauntlet of other predators. Without a doubt, this is one of the most enduring sights on the continent.

It is also one of the most unpredictable. Crossings have been seen as early as June in the Masai Mara and as late as early December, these are animals not blessed, thankfully, with clinical calendars.

Crossings however are only a very small part of this unique monstrous movement of so many ruminants, just being among the vast snorting herds is a thrill beyond price and an important chapter in any wildlife fan’s personal dairy.
