Where’s the best place to see the wildebeest migration? Kenya or Tanzania?

Kenya and Tanzania share the same ecosystem between the Masai Mara National Reserve Kenya and the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. They are all spectacular to visit for the Wildebeest Migration. Tanzania is considered more favorable due to its length of 8 months in hosting them, as well as with an exclusive event of the calving season that happens from Jan to March every year.

  • Each destination is good at completely different times of the year. The migration is usually active in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park for 8 months. It’s most active in Kenya’s Masai Mara for 4 months during July, August, September, October.
  • If you’re planning a migration safari then decide on either Kenya or Tanzania. Don’t think of combining or switching at the last moment on the cheap. Logistically it’s best to handle the Serengeti from Arusha and the Mara from Nairobi. This will help with decisions on beach breaks on the Kenyan coast or Zanzibar. Or other safaris into southern Tanzania or elsewhere in Kenya.
