9-day Great Wildebeest Migration safari (Luxury)

These mass ungulate herds cross plains and rivers as the season's change and rain-ripened grass are depleted in their area, forcing them to move on to the next.

Let HerdTracker help you to track the movement of the migratory herds, allowing you to book a migration safari in order to experience the great migration first-hand. We’ve compiled a safari that will be perfect for you to explore the migration on.
