Serengeti's Great Migration

The migration of some two million wildebeest, zebra and gazelle across the plains of Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park is one of the oldest and last great land migrations on the planet. The migration herds circumnavigate the Serengeti and Maasai Mara ecosystem annually, congregating each year between late December and March on the southern short-grass plains to drop their young. Their movements are dictated solely by rain patterns and food sources, with zebras eating the long grasses, while wildebeests follow to feast on fresh shoots.

Luxury mobile camps follow the herds, while seasonal semi-permanent camps, like Kusini, offer a plush experience while viewing the herds on your migration safari between December and March.
