November might bring rain, but it’s still a good time to see the wildebeest in the Serengeti.

Weather and wildlife

November brings cooler weather, as the early rains start to fall in the Serengeti.

The wildebeest herds are now in the Serengeti, stationed in the Lobo, Mbuze Mawe and Seronera Valley areas where water is abundant.

Where to stay in November

The south-eastern Masai Mara itself, combined with north-eastern Serengeti is where you need to be. Sala’s Camp & the Lobo mobile camps are two authentic migration safari accommodations

Our Recommended Migration Safaris

The herds are moving constantly, and therefore we recommend you look at one of these itineraries and decide what you would like to see and do on your trip. Then contact us so that we can customise it based on the migration seasonality

Apart from tweeting real-time updates of the herd's movements across the Serengeti (on behalf of the HerdTracker team) Conrad also tells what it's like to be a young, curious and braver-than-the-rest wildebeest making his way across the plains of the Serengeti on the annual great wildebeest migration.
