Wildebeest Migration, Central Serengeti
Shortly after the rain begins in November, the migrating mega herd arrives on the short-grass plains of the Central Serengeti in December. After an action-packed journey, while crossing the Masai Mara, millions of wildebeests go back to Southern and Central Serengeti. The migrating herds move quicker towards the south down to the Southern Plains which they typically reach in a matter of days. Witness millions of large animals including wildebeests and zebras flock and move from one place to another with their calves in Central Serengeti during December. It will be an unbelievable experience to see before your eyes the overwhelming amount of animals, which are the strongest ones left after facing tons of predators along their migration journey.
