The Great Serengeti Migration is the constant journey of vast numbers of wildebeest herds. This herd is accompanied by large numbers of zebra, Grant’s gazelle, Thomson’s gazelle, eland and impala. This annual migration is fairly predictable. It does vary slightly from year to year depending on herd size, grass for grazing and available water.
The wildebeest migration continues moving northwards during July and August, often spreading out across a broad front: some heading through Grumeti Reserve and Ikorongo, others north through the heart of the Serengeti National Park.
