Wildebeest Migration blog round up
Have a look at our wildebeest migration blogs below for everything you want to know about the wildebeest migration. They cover the when and where, along with top tips on how to view this extraordinary wildlife event.
The wildebeest, seemingly assembled from the wreckage of all the other plains species, is one of Africa’s most charismatic creatures. Despite the appearance of an evolutionary calamity, it is also one of the most successful. When herds around two million strong gather together to migrate between the southern parts of the Serengeti National Park and the Masai Mara Game Reserve, you find one of the most dramatic wildlife events on the planet.
If you’re planning to include time with the wildebeest migration on your safari, take a look at our top tips to maximise your chances of viewing one of the animal world’s most spectacular wildlife events.
This June Aardvark Safaris is offering guests the opportunity to walk with the annual wildebeest migration as it crosses Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park. The eight-day walking safari starts in the central Serengeti and follows the path of the migrating herds into the northern Serengeti, walking between 15 – 20 kilometres per day. Hiking routes are away from tracks and vehicles, enabling guests to access areas off-limits to ‘normal’ visitors.
Wildebeest are wild animals so it’s impossible to know exactly when and where a river crossing will occur. However there are a few ways to boost your chances of getting that perfect action photograph of wildebeest at a river crossing.
