2020 Tanzania August to October Great Migration safari (Best for budget)

The wildebeest migration, is one of the “Seven New Wonder of the World” and also known as The World Cup of Wildlife. If there is a safari you should go on, this has to be it!

Nowhere in the world is there a movement of animals as immersing as the wildebeest migration, over two million animals migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the greener pastures of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya during August through to October.

From August the wildebeest herds begin moving faster in search of water and greener grass, making their way across the Grumeti and Mara River. October is a good time to see the wildebeest herds move back into the Serengeti and warm weather can be expected.
