October is a good time to see the wildebeest herds move back into the Serengeti

October is a good time to see the wildebeest herds move back into the Serengeti. As with August and September, the herds are yet again in a pretty identical position in the northern Serengeti areas of Kogatende and Lamai, and in the Masai Mara.

For the last two weeks, there have been light rains that are pushing the herds south. However, this takes a long time as there are so many of them! The chances are even if you are visiting the north in late October, that a good few of the herds will still be lingering in the north.
