Many people have the misconception that East Africa’s great migration is a singular or finite event. The truth is that the migration is a year-long movement covering vast tracks of wilderness in Kenya and Tanzania–the animals are always somewhere! During this annual journey, the herds will differ in behavior, location, and density, traversing farmland, game reserve, national park, communal land, and conservancies. And there are of course particular times when the migration is especially rewarding, for example the calving seasons (February-March, in the southern Serengeti/Ndutu), the rutting season (May-June in the central Serengeti), or the crossing season (July-September, in the southern Serengeti and in the Maasai Mara).
