The annual wildebeest migration in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park and Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the most spectacular wildlife events on the planet. Referred to as the ‘Greatest Show on Earth', the Great Wildebeest Migration is a movement of approximately 2 million wildebeest accompanied with Thomson’s gazelle, zebra and eland throughout the Serengeti and Masai Mara ecosystems in search of green pastures and water during July through to October. These are the main migratory and they cross the ranges of over a quarter of a million other resident herbivores and, of course, carnivores.

From June to November, masses of wildlife congregate around the river, but the park is a stronghold for big game year-round.
