As the last month of the river crossing migration, September is when you would want to head to the Serengeti National Park if you plan to witness the final moments of the Great Migration. You shouldn’t miss this significant phenomenon happening on the plains of the park. Mega herds of animals dash, move and fight over predators for survival during the finale of the Serengeti migration. Millions of wildebeests, accompanied by a small portion of zebras, gazelles, elans, and impalas move in a predictable pattern in search for fresh grass and better quality of water. During the migration of herds, they will face predators along the way. The Mara River is no exception for the migrating animals. Crocodiles lurk the river after the passing packs where they stealthily catch their preys. The action is abundant during this time at the Serengeti National Park.
