Wildebeest Migration Kichakani Serengeti Camp

When to Visit

The best time to visit the Serengeti is often focused around the Great Migration. The Serengeti ecosystem is divided into two main regions: the northern and southern Serengeti.

Northern Serengeti (June to August): During this period, the Great Migration typically moves into the northern Serengeti, specifically around the Mara River. This is a prime time to witness dramatic river crossings as wildebeests and zebras navigate crocodile-infested waters. Predators like lions and crocodiles are also more active during this time.

Southern Serengeti (December to March): This is the calving season for the wildebeests. The southern Serengeti plains provide ample grazing for the large herds, and you'll have a chance to see the newborn calves alongside other wildlife. This is also the time when predator action is high, as they take advantage of the vulnerable young animals.
