9 Days Wildebeest Migration Safari

Witness the great wildebeest migration in the best possible manner

The Great Wildebeest Migration in the Serengeti is the biggest single development of wild creatures on the planet, deservedly recorded as one of its eight Natural Wonders and an excellent motivation for a fantasy nature voyage through northern Tanzania with DB East Africa Safaris.

Around 1.5 million wildebeests, with a huge number of zebras, elands, gazelles alongside a trailing entourage of predators, leave their calving grounds in southern Serengeti, around March and April, heading for the following water source.

The move through the south-focal Seronera edges into the Western Corridor and Grumeti River showing up during the period of April to May and living until June. Afterward at long last towards the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya crossing the unsafe Mara River around July or August onwards with an arrival through a similar shocking stream, this time making a beeline for the orientation of Lobo and Loliondo in eastern Serengeti around October to November. The white hairy wildebeest venture proceeds back toward the southern Ndutu calving grounds with appearances beginning around December with brief habitation until March.

The dates timing of the movement relies on the yearly rains and recharging of new field, which may regularly happen prior, or later in certain years. In any case, the scene merits the push to make a 9 Days Wildebeest Migration Safari with us.  You will have an adventurous and exciting safari as huge numbers of wild gnus pour over the fields, driven by intuition or need so that they go about as one substance, seeking after their fate, to groove, mate, dare and die on this incomprehensibly risky excursion. You will have the exposure to witness the definitive endurance of the wildebeest and the duration of the Serengeti biological system of which they are the origin.

Their epic excursion is one of brutality and continuance as they fight onwards, past stone kopjes where cheetah or lion lie in snare, through flood-swollen and crocodile invaded waterways, over dried fields burned by rapidly spreading fires, to asylum in the north. At that point, homing in on inaccessible downpours, they hover back once more, daring prominent dangers by similar water, by fatigue and by predators, shedding a fourth of their numbers by the wayside.

To value the monstrosity of this marvel, you should partake, following and seeing from 4×4 game-survey vehicles, filming from the earliest stage noticeable all around in a tourist balloon to focus in on the activity as though the ceaseless fields were your performance center with your own cast of millions highlighting their antiquated custom for only you.

We ensure you have best of exploration and enjoyment during this adventurous safari. We also make sure that you have perfect comfort, safety and best of guidance from our local guides. We not only highlight the wildebeest migration to you but also make you close to African culture as you drive to Mto-wa-mbu village.

It is for sure you will cherish your safari experience.
