Follow the Great Wildebeest Migration

The migration of nearly two million wildebeest and zebra across the plains of Tanzania's Serengeti and Kenya's Maasai Mara is one of the oldest and last great land migrations on the planet. The movements are dictated solely by the rains and food sources (grasses), with zebras eating the long grasses, while wildebeests follow to feast on fresh shoots. While often unpredictable and not a perfect science, the typical movements of the herds are illustrated in the interactive map below, which also shows the locations of camps in each area.
