The Migration in Tanzania

In December through March the Serengeti plains and the Ngorongoro Conservation areas in northern Tanzania are home to giant herds of wildebeest, zebra and other ungulates. This is calving season. Most of the wildebeest calves are born in just a three week period, usually the beginning of February. Calves attract predators and this is an amazing time of year to watch impressive lion kills. It`s also quite spectacular to see almost half a million little wildebeest being born and running alongside their mothers. The southern Ndutu and Salei plains are the best areas to see the large herds during this time of year.

The best places to stay include Ndutu Safari Lodge, Kusini Camp, Lemala Ndutu Camp and any mobile tented camps in the area. By April/May the herds begin to migrate west and north to the grassier plains and woodland of the Serengeti’s western Corridor. The rain during this time of year makes it difficult to follow the herds during this stage of their migration. Many of Tanzania`s smaller camps in fact shut down due to impassable roads. By the end of May, as the rains stop, the wildebeest and zebra gradually start moving north and individual groups begin to congregate and form much larger herds. This is also the time the wildebeest mate. Western Serengeti is the best place to watch the migration unfold.

By July the herds reach their first big obstacle, the Grumeti River. The Grumeti river can get deep in places, especially if the rains have been good. This is the first of the spectacular river crossings you can witness. The depth of the river makes drowning a distinct possibility for many wildebeest and there are plenty of crocodiles to take advantage of their distress.
Mbalageti Serengeti is located in the Western corridor of the Serengeti National Park, the largest and most famous national park in Tanzania. One of the main attractions is the annual migration of the wildebeests and its large number of lions, cheetahs and herds of giraffes and zebras.

With its unparalleled opportunities for wildlife viewing and seeing Africa at its most untamed, the Serengeti National Park offers a synchrony of beauty and nature as no other place. The Mbalageti Serengeti is situated on the Mwamveni hill and offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the Serengeti plains and the Mbalageti River. Entering from the Mwanza-Musoma highway, through the Ndabaka gate (1.5hrs) or from Naabi gate from Arusha side (3 hrs); the drive is a unique wilderness experience.
