The great Serengeti Wildebeest migration is the movement of a vast number of the Serengeti's wildebeest on a circle way.

The journey involves transversing through Tanzania all the way to Maasai Mara In Kenya, taking after the regular seasonal rains.

Zebra, Grant's gazelle, Thomson's gazelle, eland, and the Impala are among the animals that accompany the wildebeest throughout this journey.


The relocation process includes passing through dangerous territories where predators equally wait upon this moment for a feast.

The Sole Purpose of the migration is following the rains which bring about greener pastures grazing around the Serengeti in Tanzania and finally into Maasai Mara in Kenya.

Calving is another reason for migration from December to march as they begin their cycle in the southern Serengeti area of Ndutu.
