The biggest and greatest land animal migration on earth with up to 2 million animals, led by over 1.5 million wildebeest, zebras and antelope move in a clockwise route through the east African plains following the rains and resultant rich grazing.
The majority of the animal's time is spent within the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Conservation areas, and the other months within Kenya, in the Masaai Mara. They are closely followed by all kinds of predators and scavengers, both on land and in the air.
Depending on the time of year, and therefore where the animals are likely to be, visitors can witness herds stretching into the distance, thousands upon thousands of animals crossing the swollen Mara river with predatory crocodiles lying in wait.
The annual, drama filled calving season occurs in the vicinity of the Ndutu plains in the months of February / March and early April.
