Migration 1-0-1 | What happens when and where

01 September 2022

Migration 1-0-1 says that there is something for everyone in every season. Traditionally the greatest show on earth catered for Natural Geographic enthusiasts with big budgets, assuming that the beasts only travel for a short part of the year. The reality is, that they travel year-round and that we, as safari experts can place your clients smack in the middle of all the action.

Suckling Season | January & February

If baby animals are your thing, then this is the time to go. Enormous numbers of foals and fawns frolic around on the southern Serengeti plains. Stealthily escaping the prying eyes of predators, thanks to 8000 wildebeest calves born every day.

The sudden spurt of greenery prompts resident game into their birthing season and the woodlands erupt with wobbly-legged giraffes, baby elephants and warthog piglets.

It’s a free-feeding frenzy, with big cats taking down more food than their cubs could consume. This surely is a photographer’s paradise. 

Green Season | March, April & May

The long rains arrive along with a thousand rainbows, transforming the Serengeti into a lush landscape. Those who brave the morning and evening showers are mollycoddled by mother nature’s paintbrush. Sojourning this time of the year guarantees unequalled exclusivity to endless plains, big cat sightings and discounted pricing!

The Great Escape | June

Big cats and other predators wake to silence as the wildebeest herds vanish from the central southern plains, adhering to their urgency for greener pastures attracting them north into the western corridor. The northern predators, both mammal and animal, welcome them with open claws, and scores succumb to the dangers of the west.

Immigration Check | July, August & September

The first eager beasts arrive at the banks of the Grumeti and Mara Rivers whilst droves of nervous hooves quickly stack up behind them, cautiously scouting the murky waters for what lies beneath. The lush grasslands of the Mara lay temptingly afore. But first, it’s passport stamps and pat-downs by Africa’s largest and most vicious predators, giant Nile crocodiles.

Time to Chill | October & November

With all the excitement and adventure of fighting through crocodile-infested waters the last few months, the herds start settling in the Northern Serengeti. The smell of the “Rains down in Africa”, is causing a stir-up as they grow restless, longing for the plains of the south.

The Long Way South | December

Just as in June, there is a sudden absence in the central and Northern Serengeti. Empty spaces fill the land and echoes of Gnu grunts a distant memory. They have upped and left, like thieves in the night, and the wildebeest herds are now dotted in the south, in preparation for the culmination of their gestation period, and the long journey the following year.
