Witness nature's greatest spectacle
Each year millions of wildebeest, gazelles and zebras thunder across the Serengeti plains in search of green grass and fresh water. A breathtaking experience to see all those animals migrate from north to south, followed by their predators.
Best time to visit Serengeti
The southern and northern plains of the Serengeti are the two main feeding grounds for the herds. The animals are constantly on the move between these two areas each year. We can generally predict where they should be at a given time of the year. Check Where and when to go.
