The Serengeti is famed for its annual migration when more than 1,500,000 wildebeest and 500,000 Thomson Gazelle follow some 200,000 zebra in a 2,000 km round pilgrimage in search of fresh grazing and water. It is” the greatest wildlife show on earth’’ and ’’ once in a lifetime experience’’.The best time to see the migration is between June and August when the wildebeest congregate and prepare to cross the Grumeti River. However, both the route and timing of the migration are unpredictable so visitors must plan carefully to be assured of seeing the spectacle.
