The famous migrations that people dream to experience, is actually a dynamic process taking full year to complete. There are different “events” that happen during the year and in different location in the park there are two primary “seasons” in Serengeti. Green season and dry season during (November – June) There are short periods of rain usually at night and in the late afternoon. During this time, the wildebeest and Zebras herds leave the northern parts of the Serengeti and travel southern and eastern Serengeti.The wildebeest rut usually beings near the full moon in April and last though the month of May and sometimes June depending when the rut began.

July – October: We recommend significant time in the northern Serengeti to have the opportunity to witness river crossing.
