Wildebeest Great Migration
The Wildebeest Migration takes place within Kenya and Tanzania and is the greatest wildlife show on earth. Between the open plains of the Serengeti and the Masai Mara, thousands of wildebeest and zebras migrate to greener pastures.
January & February
Tanzania's prime game viewing time. Perfect time to take a Zanzibar holiday, especially if you enjoy diving. Lake Manyara hosts a variety of bird and animal species. The Serengeti and Selous are teeming with wildlife.
Mid March to May
This is the Long Rain season in East Africa. Safaris are still good in Serengeti, Lake Manyara and the Masai Mara.
June to September
The Wildebeest Migration heads away from the Serengeti. By the end of August the Masai Mara is teeming with wildlife. Consider climbing Kilimanjaro or lazing on one of the Kenya beaches. Tarangire and the Selous are very enjoyable now.
October to December
The Rift Valley Lakes entertain a host of birds and wildlife. It’s a popular season to visit Zanzibar. The migratory animals are now returning to the Serengeti making it the perfect time for safari travel.
