Safari in March wildebeest migration pattern – Serengeti National Park Tanzania
Safari in march wildebeest migration pattern – They are generally still in the south Serengeti but the grasses have all been munched up, the last calves born, and the herds are starting to gather in preparation for the next leg of their journey.
This is still the best and perfect time to visit southern Serengeti as the tourism population is still low and you can have the perfect holiday in Tanzania.
The Southern Serengeti consists of vast expanses of short grass plains and smaller kopjes and rocky outcrops. The area stretches south to the Ngorongoro conservation area and Maswa Game Reserve. This area truly thrives and comes to life from mid-November to April time when the migration makes its home here to calve. At this time of year staying in this area is a real must!
In the Southern Serengeti we recommend Dunia Camp, a resident in the area year-round and then Olakira and Ubuntu mobile camps, which make the area their home at this time. Nasikia Mobile Camp is a fantastic option for those on a slightly lower budget, but still looking for that intimate, authentic safari camping experience.
