Eastern Serengeti

After the rains of October and November have irrigated the Southern Volcanic Grasslands, the herds return south via the most direct route, which is more or less along the border of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Reserves. Hundreds of wildebeest form up into long narrow columns and filter through the landscape of low hills and scattered woodlands, much as they did through the Western Corridor six months previously. Scores of such columns wind through the region.

Although the grasses along the route have ripened following the rains, the herds do not tarry. They are bound for the richer short grasses in the south.

When to Visit
The migrants stream through the region throughout November and December. By January they will have arrived in the southern corner of Serengeti/Ngorongoro, where the journey began.
