Where is the Wildebeest Migration?

Welcome to Wildebeest Sightings, where we bring Wildebeest Migration Updates throughout the year. Follow the Wildebeest Migration in Kenya and Tanzania as they migrate from the Serengeti North to Masai Mara every Year. 

We have created the best wildebeest migration map of the wildebeest migration in Tanzania from Serengeti to Masai Mara in Kenya. The Great Wildebeest Migration is a phenomenon known to be epic and sighted in East Africa where more than 1.2 million wildebeests migrate in a circular form within the Serengeti and Masai Mara Eco System. 

The Wildebeest Migration wonder of the world is recorded to be one of the most fascinating adventures you can ever witness, especially when they cross and jump high cliffs of rivers as they look for greener pastures.

From the Wildebeest Calving season in Ndutu Conservation Area to their growth and maturity as they cross the major Mara River in North Serengeti and Masai Mara, it is known they trek for more than 1000km complete circle.  

As the Year progresses to June and July the wildebeest migration approaches the major rivers of Mara River. Wildebeest Crossings are witnessed easily in both Serengeti and Masai Mara. 

The great migration is always awaited during the months of July to October as its when the best sightings are seen as they jump and cross these Crocodile-infested Mara – Serengeti Rivers. You can book some of our best Masai Mara Migration Packages, or a Serengeti Wildebeest Safaris, well-curated to ensure you enjoy the migration safaris to the fullest.

We have already designed wildebeest migration safari packages to help you plan your next Kenya migration safari with ease and expertise. You can customise and rebuild your own itinerary with the help of our migration safari experts in Kenya and Tanzania.

The journey for the key players in the Great Migration, the roughly two million wildebeest, starts in the south of the Serengeti, with the birth of half a million calves between January and March. A favourite season for many of the seasoned Serengeti guides: the air during these months is full of new life and action.

Nothing like calving season in Ndutu to witness the first moments of life. We missed the actual birth of this wildebeest calf by no more than 2 minutes, ( it’s a little tricky to find a mom delivering in sea of half a million wildebeest!!) but we had the joy of watching him take his first steps. How incredible that they are walking within 4 minutes of birth! A truly magical experience !

It’s a great morning from Ndutu, the Serengeti’s Southern Jewel.
Ndutu, nestled in the heart of the Serengeti ecosystem, comes alive during the calving season as wildebeest embark on their annual migration.  The vast plains of Ndutu witness a breathtaking spectacle as thousands of wildebeest, accompanied by zebras 🦓 and other herbivores, converge in search of fresh grazing grounds and safer birthing sites.
