The number of animals on the landscape of the Serengeti was incomparable

HerdTracker update 22 Jan 2020 by Michael Peter Dawkins

The number of animals on the landscape of the Serengeti was incomparable!

Horizons covered in black from the 1.5 million wildebeest and zebras that traveled over 800 kilometres to this spot in the southern Serengeti to graze on green grasses and birth their young. No photo or video can capture the largest overland migration in the world.

January is one of the absolute best times to see the Migration in herds of thousands. If you were thinking of travelling to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, consider going towards the end of January. This way, you will avoid peak, peak prices over the festive period and the crowds that come with it. By visiting later in the month, you will also have the best chances of catching the big herds, as by this time the majority will definitely be fully into calving season creating spectacular wildlife viewing opportunities.

The nearest accommodation to the herds: Ubuntu Migration Camp (Dec – Mar), Ngorongoro Crater Tours

Recommended safari: East Africa Great National Parks

Monthly Herdtracker Migration Safaris

Join our HerdTracker guides on a scheduled HerdTracker Migration Safari. Stay at the right place, at the right time as our expert HerdTracker guides gets you close to nature's greatest spectable.
