Wildebeest Migration Experience
The Great Wildebeest Migration – also known as the Serengeti Migration and Masai Mara Migration – is one of most and the last mass earthly wildlife movements left on Earth. It’s the principal reason why so many tourists will include Kenya and Tanzania on their travel list for a Migration safari.
Wildebeest Migration is one of nature’s highest contradictions, the timing is absolutely important however, there is no way certain prediction of the timing of the animals’ movements. Much as we know that the wildebeest and a bit of the zebra and antelope will cross the Mara River this doesn’t let anybody in the know of exactly when. It is known that rain will initiate the wildebeest to move onto fresh grazing plains–however, not anybody knows the exact when the rain will fall.
The interesting part is that we have been planning Wildebeest Migration safaris in Kenya and Tanzania for quite a long time and helped a lengthy number of tourists to be in the best possible spot at the right time. You are looking for a skilled planning advice, please consider us to compile the best guide itinerary to a Wildebeest Migration safari
Is the Migration River Crossings Predicted?
This is the point of luck on the trip though it happens on most days however, not even the wildebeest know when they are to cross the river. Most of them arrive at the water and swim over instantly and some arrive and spend time dangling around grazing or fearing the predators on the other side of the rive whereas, others arrive and turn back to where they came from. It is our wish to make it to the best crossing spots and encourage you to have enough time for the safari to make it possible for you to see a river crossing.
Which Month is the best for Wildebeest Migration?
It is believed that people think Wildebeest Migration only happens between July and October, but it’s truly an ever-moving, round migration with various but similarly exciting events that happen year-round. The popular river crossings frequently overlap with high season of safaris between June and October hence the insight that this is the only time of the year that the wildebeest are on the move or can be seen.
Where does the Wildebeest Migration Start?
The Great Migration is an all-year-round movement of near two million animals across the Serengeti Masai Mara ecosystems fuelled by rains and food. There is no any defined starting or ending points. The Gnu Migration is caused by the East Africa’s rains and the animals follow an age-old route in search of fresh grazing and water. This classic journey takes the wildebeest across the Masai Mara plains in Kenya, all the way south into Tanzania’s Serengeti and at the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater, before rotating up and around for some good time
Why Do Wildebeest Migrate?
It is normally thought that the Great Migration in Africa is forced mainly by the wildebeest’s response to the weather conditions. They move after the rains and the growth of new grass, essentially following a natural predisposition to find food and water for their life. Some specialists believe that the wildebeests are triggered by distant lightning and thunderstorms, but there is no scientific proof of it.
The excessive wildebeest migration is one of the most extraordinary natural animal movement in the world being an annual movement by millions of wildebeest, accompanied by large herds of zebra, Grant’s gazelle, Thompson’s gazelle, elands and impalas across the greater Masai Mara-Serengeti ecosystem.
July to September is the best time for Masai Mara to welcome the Great Migration of thousands of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti in Tanzania to Masai Mara in Kenya. During the wildebeest migration, you will witness how the endless battle for survival makes the Migration Season a predominantly frightening moment.
The Mara River crossing movement is considered the climax of the migration period. Mara River crossing is an event that will take you through a variety of emotions: anticipation, heartache, motivation, enthusiasm and more. The absolute view of the first herds of animals rushing into the crocodile-infested river will make you consider this wildebeest migration experience every year.
