$ 4,598
Our 8-Day Serengeti the Great Migration safari has been designed the aim of witnessing the Great Migration during the calving season. At the beginning of the short rainy season end of October, the herds of wildebeest start arriving at the short-grass plains of the Serengeti around early November. The short-grass plains are located in the area east and south of the Seronera-the heart of the Serengeti, around Ndutu area and the northern Ngorongoro Conservation area. Huge herds of wildebeest and zebra can easily be seen roaming around the plains as they feed on the green pastures. It has been recorded that more than 250,000 calves of wildebeest are born during the first two weeks of February. They normally stay in the area till early April and later start heading west towards the Grumet River and Musabi plains in the Western Corridor of the Serengeti National Park. Kindly note that this is a natural phenomenon in rare cases the Great Migration be affected by rainfall, availability of water and food in the area, predators, and nutrition contents in the grasses. read more read less
