About our 4 Days Masai Mara Wildebeest Migration Safari
Our 4 Days Masai Mara Wildebeest Migration Safari is an all private safari tour that begins in Nairobi and with Daily Guaranteed Departures throughout the year.
The Great Wildebeest Migration is one of the last mass terrestrial wildlife movements left on the planet and the chief reason why so many safari-lovers ventures to the Serengeti-Masai Mara ecosystem, especially at mid-year.
The Migration is one of nature’s greatest paradoxes: your timing is absolutely everything but there is no way to predict the timing of the animals’ movement. We know that the wildebeest (and a smattering of zebra and antelope) will cross the Mara River – but we don’t know exactly when. We know that rain will trigger those same plains game to move onto fresh grazing – but we don’t know when that rain will come.

The Great Migration is a year-round phenomenon, with different but equally exciting elements occurring at various times of the year. The river crossings usually coincide with peak safari season, hence the perception that this is the only time of the year that the wildebeest are on the move or can be seen.
With climate change, the long and short rainy seasons over Tanzania and Kenya are no longer as regular or predictable as they once were. The rains can be ‘late’ or ‘early’, which will throw the whole wildebeest calendar out of synch. This is, once again, why it’s important to plan for as much time on safari as possible. You cannot fly in for two nights, see a river crossing and fly out again – nature simply doesn’t work that way!
This is a very general breakdown of more or less where the herds are during the year, bearing in mind that the entire Migration is triggered by rain, which can be early, late or ‘on time’.
