The Great Wildebeest and Zebra migration in Tanzania and Kenya is one of nature’s most breathtaking spectacles.
The migration happens year round as the Wildebeest and Zebra go in search of greener grazing pastures, and the many predators follow them in search of mood. Think of it like a roaming buffet of sorts.
Whilst the exact time and location of the migration throughout the year is difficult to predict, it does typically move in the same broadstroke regions, depending on rainfall etc.
If you were to travel to view the migration, August is probably your best month to do it and north Tanzania is where you want to be. This is the time when the Wildebeest give birth and the babies need to build up some size and strength before embarking on the round trip journey.
This means the Wildebeest are in one place for four to six weeks, as are the predators. This makes for a lot of animals in one place and nature unfolds in front of your eyes.
If you are the more adventurous type you may choose to follow the migration in tented accommodation on overland drives. This is the best way to get up close to the migration and the accommodation is excellent. When we say tents we don’t mean erect them yourself. The camps are set up in advance and you may have a shower and regular four-star comforts, excluding wifi of course, but that’s the point.
