Up to 2 million animals, such as wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, topi, hartebeest and impala, migrate seasonally, in a clockwise direction, from south Serengeti in Tanzania to the Masai Mara in Kenya.
Historically, the herds follow a fairly regular yearly pattern of migration. However, changes in climate and the timing of seasons can disrupt this pattern and result in migratory animals arriving in areas ahead of normal predictions. Yet, no matter what the time of year you come, there is always somewhere you can go within the Serengeti ecosystem to see the migration.
