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

  • Weather

November is a hot month in Serengeti National Park, with average temperatures ranging from max 27°C (80.6°F) to min 15°C (59°F). November ushers in milder temperatures as the Serengeti's early rains begin to fall.

  • Movements of Migrants

The wildebeest herds have relocated to the Serengeti's Lobo, Mbuze Mawe, and Seronera Valley fields, which have sufficient water.

  • Predator encounters

Cheetah encounters are most likely.

  • Accommodation options

The Masai Mara in the south-east, along with the Serengeti in the north-east, is the place to be. Two real migratory safari accommodations are Sala's Camp and the Lobo mobile campgrounds.
