March :- Wildebeests Calves are roaming around as they learn to move for the next great migration.

Wildebeest Migration in March is pretty great and you will be lucky to spot them in South Serengeti, and more lucky if you are in Seronera, in Central Serengeti. It’s easy to spot some herds that went ahead of the others in this region.

The migration in March starts to move north, towards Central Serengeti occupying regions like Seronera, Rongai, and Moru areas. At this time of the year, the wildebeests find enough food and water after 3 months stay away.

Wildebeest calves grow tremendously during this time to sub-adult wildebeests. They take this opportunity to ensure they are old enough to tackle the challenges ahead of them in the major migration up north of Serengeti.

The Seronera region is more central and easily accessible by guests on safari. It’s most common due to the large concentration of wildlife including the wildebeests.

This region has enough food and water for the migration to take in for a month or so as they move North.
