The Great Wildebeest Migration takes place over the course of the year and can always be seen between Kenya and Tanzania. If you aren’t able to head to the northern part of Serengeti National Park right away, you can always head down there in Easter or catch the spectacular river crossings in the Maasai Mara National Reserve between July and October.

Current Location

Late last week, a majority of the wildebeest herds were located in the southern Serengeti, and more specifically in the Ndutu area where thousands of calves were born. This week, the herds have begun moving further south with large numbers grazing in the area around Kusini and Maswa.

Easter Holiday Location

For those of you looking to get away this upcoming Easter holiday, by late March early April the herds can be seen in the southernmost area of the Serengeti. Depending on the level of rainfall, some of the herds will begin migrating north towards the central Serengeti and west towards the Grumeti Private Reserve.
