The short grass plains are located in the area east and south of the Seronera, around Ndutu and the northern Ngorongoro Conservation area. Herds of wildebeest and zebra can be seen across these plains as they feed on the nutrient-rich grasses. The majority of the wildebeest calves around February. They normally stay in the area till April and then start moving west towards the Western Corridor of the Serengeti National Park.
By the end of each April, the wildebeest migration starts to spread west across the plains towards the central Serengeti (Seronera area) and Western Serengeti. The majority of the migration can normally be seen in the south of the Seronera, in the southern plains from April to May. Around June, the majority of the migration can then be found in the Western Serengeti. The Western Corridor (Western Serengeti) is a narrow stretch of land that stretches from the west of Seronera 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 usually happens when the animals leave the southern plains and begin heading north. In July, the wildebeest migration moves to the north, passing through the north of the central Serengeti National Park (Lobo area) and the remote northern Serengeti National Park along the Mara River (Wagakuria area) en-route to Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve.
The migration arrives in the Wagakuria area anytime from July onwards and wildebeest can be seen in the area, crossing the Mara River. Around September, the wildebeest herds are spread out over the Northern Serengeti National Park and Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve. Numerous large herds of wildebeest remain behind in the area and sometimes weather changes can bring the herds back into the area from the Mara.
In October, the herds move south towards the central Serengeti National Park via the Lobo area of the Serengeti National Park.
You should note that it is difficult to anticipate the exact location and time of the migration, as this can vary considerably from year to year, depending on factors such as food abundance, predators, rainfall, water availability and the phosphorus content in the grasses.
