The Best Time for Wildebeest Migration and Crossings

As they move to the Northern region of the Serengeti, the wildebeest move in millions, following rain patterns and some biological trends like mating. They spend the months of April, May, and June migrating and arrive at the crossing points along the infested Mara River in Serengeti and Masai Mara.

The unimagined phenomenon starts in the month of June or July all the way to October. Wildebeests try to jump high river cliffs, cross flooded rivers, and risk lives in search of greener grounds (Wildebeest Interesting Facts).

While witnessing this phenomenon, most cats and scavengers are always grateful to the incoming frequent visitors, as they will make food readily available for them.

These bring in amazing sightings of big cats hunting and also, sightings of wildebeest mating are high while in Masai Mara.

The best times to witness the wildebeest Migration and crossings are during the months of July to the end of October. You can follow our monthly wildebeest migration updates which keep it updated throughout the season.
