High on most traveller's list when visiting Eat Africa is to witness the great Wilderbeest Migration. But when is the right time to see it?

 

​As you'll see from the map, the migration occurs in a clockwise circular direction that traverse between Kenya's Masai Mara and Tanzania's Serengeti. The majority of the year the migration can be seen in the Serengeti, however, the famous river crossing mainly occurs in the Masai Mara.

 

Traditionally between January  and February the wilderbeest are in the southern Serengeti and are ready to calve. This is quite a spectacle as within a couple of weeks hundreds of thousands of new wildebeest are born. With such activity preditor action is high. 

 

For the above reasons it makes it the perfect time to tick to fantastic bucket list items 1) Run a marathon & 2) go on safari!
