Is This Trip for Me?
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.
October finds the herds spread out across the Mara Triangle and the far north of the Serengeti, with the herds continually on a slow march around the area, looking for green pastures. With the herds on the continual quest for grazing, there will still be some river crossing going on, through October. As soon as the rains start in the southern Serengeti, the whole migration starts its trek south again. This can happen at any time, but normally towards the end of the month.
