Destinations: Serengeti National Park, Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara National Park & Ngorongoro Crater


As May approaches, the Wildebeest migration starts to move West across the Serengeti through Central Serengeti and Western Serengeti. During this time, herds of wildebeest can be spotted in groups in Central Serengeti (Seronera) or in the Southern plans of Serengeti. From June, the migration can be found in the Western Corridor. The Western Corridor is a narrow stretch of land that stretches from the Central to the Western Serengeti National Park border. The Western corridor is one of the areas where the migrating animals are forced to cross the Grumeti River. This normally happens when the animals leave the southern plains and begin heading north.
