November :- The Wildebeest Migration is still on the move to the South of Serengeti

The wildebeest migration in November is not as active and engaging per se. The whole herds are headed to Serengeti South and Ndutu as fast as possible. They have to catch up with the short green grass that has grown from the short rains in late October and November.

Most herds can be spotted in Central Serengeti, but some leader herds can be spotted in South Serengeti. By December, they should be arriving in South Serengeti and Ndutu.
