Great wildebeest Migration, Day 2. Arusha City to Ngorongoro Crator


Your journey starts early in the morning. You can ask for a breakfast box at the hotel.

There will be cooled mineral water and a nice picnic lunch with us. So you are fully prepared to explore the Ngorongoro Crater.

Ngorongoro crater

The Ngorongoro crater is known as the eighth wonder of the world!!

The big five animals —lion, leopard, elephant, black rhinoceros, and African buffalo—are indeed enormous.

In Ngorongoro Crater, National Park, it’s possible to see all the big five.

Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA), measuring 8,300 square kilometres, is the only place on earth where humankind and wild animals coexist harmoniously. Above all, the Ngorongoro crater sinks to a depth of 610 meters, with a base area covering 260 square kilometres. Thereby, the height of the original volcano must have ranged between 4,500 to 5,800 meters.

Furthermore, from the central caldera, Ngorongoro Crater has two volcanic. Olmoti and Empakai are famous for their stunning waterfalls, the latter holding a deep lake and Kuso green walls.

Again, down in the creator, there are so many scenes of unimaginable abundance. For instance, wildebeest, zebra buffalo, and Grant’s gazelle are presenting in great numbers. But there are also land, warthog, hartebeest, bushbuck, waterbuck, and Bohr’s reedbuck. Tomorrow morning you will depart for the Serengeti National Park. Here you will witness the Great Wildebeest Migration!

Great Wildebeest Migration, Day 4: Serengeti (North Mara)


Breakfast is served at the camp. Afterwards, we take our picnic lunch and go on a game drive to watch the great migration.

In short, it is Africa’s greatest wildlife spectacle. However, they have in mind the exact Great Migration, a column of wildebeest 24 miles (40km) long, shuffling across the plains two or three abreast, all on the move in search of fresh, green grass. To illustrate, suppose it takes more than two weeks for this column of animals to pass through a place. For example, if they are huddled together for protection, giving birth or fleeing in panic from the jaws of a crocodile.
Lions and hyenas prowl the scene, looking for the weakest animal or the lone straggler separated from the herd. In fact, you have just visualised the wonderful phenomenon of the Great Serengeti Migration.

Accommodation: Mara Mara Tented Camp


Great Wildebeest Migration, Day 5: Serengeti (North Mara)

After breakfast enjoy a full-day game drive on the Mara River watching the great wildebeest migration. You will return to your camp in the evening for a campfire, dinner and overnight stay.

In particular, more than 2 million migrating animals take part in this annual journey: 1.5 million wildebeests, 400,000 zebras and 300,000 gazelles, accompanied by different objectives: to find fresh, green grass. The Great Migration takes place all year round. Of course, prey and predator follow a relatively predictable but variable annual cycle, depending on rainfall and the availability of green grass. The Serengeti migration is unique!

Day 6: Serengeti North -Departure

After breakfast, enjoy your last day in the area as you take a game drive on your way to the airport for your flight home.

Great Wildebeest Migration in Serengeti, the best time to visit Serengeti National Park!

December or sometimes as early as the end of November:

The wildebeest begin their main migration towards Serengeti National Park. They also cover the southern and eastern parts of Soronea, Ndutu and the northern part of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

January to March.

Birthing takes place around Lake Ndutu.


When the newborn calves have gained enough energy and adapted to the environment, the migration begins again towards the north.


The wildebeest are no longer far from the Grument River. This is an advantageous time because of the water available in their river and the green pasture provided by the forest surrounding the Grumenti River.


Earlier this month, they split into smaller groups, with one group heading into the heart of Serengeti National Park and the other into the northern part of the Serengeti. A major challenge on this route is crossing the Mar River, which has proven to be a major obstacle when it’s flooded with hungry predator animals waiting for the wildebeest.

Great Wildebeest Migration in Serengeti, October

All the wildebeest in the migrating herds will now follow the same route, joining the smaller herds that formed during the Grument migration. The movement is focused on finding potential areas with enough grass. This is also the time when the weather starts to get a little rainy, which can sometimes cause the herds to approach their original starting point, and they’ll wait until the short rainy season is over and start the cycle again.

In late November or early December;

This is the time when the wildebeest begin to make their way to the greener pastures of the Serengeti Plains, and so the migration automatically begins.
