How much does it cost to see the Great Migration?

Is witnessing the Great Wildebeest Migration on your bucket list? The east Africa Kenya Masai Mara and Tanzania  Serengeti National Park host this natural phenomenon each and every year.

Making trips to these two destinations  {Tanzania Serengeti and the Masai Mara in Kenya} are expensive destinations to visit, so is it possible to do it on a budget?

Hereinbelow find some of the factors that influence the cost of a Great Migration safari tour cost.

The season you travel in for your 6 Days Great Migration Safari Tour: 

The great wildebeest migration safari is a cyclical event that occurs throughout the year, but in different regions, as the herds make their way between Tanzania and Kenya looking for greener pastures, fertile soils where minerals abound as well freshwater.

This phenomenon is determined by rainfall in each region and so can be challenging to predict. This spectacle is divided into two seasons, the green season (or calving season) and the dry (or predator season):

6 Days Great Migration Safari Tour in Green season:
The months of January, February, and March mark the season for heavy rains in the Serengeti. This, in turn, marks the start of the calving season, where hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and plains game give birth to about 200 000 babies.

The rains also transform the landscape into fields of green pastures and flowers, a very beautiful spectacle. However, increased vegetation makes game viewing a challenge, as it hides many animals.

This is why you can expect reduced rates for the Great Migration safari tour packages during this period.

6 Days Great Migration Safari Tour in Dry season: 

As the herds migrate north towards the Masai Mara, the rainfall stops and the vegetation recedes. This exposes both the herds and the predators, which is why game viewing is so spectacular during the dry months of July to September.

Forced into the open, the interaction between predator and prey can be experienced easily. Less rainfall also means that wildlife must find water quickly, and waterholes around camps and lodges attract thousands of them.

This is the most expensive time of year for a Great Migration safari, but the wildebeest crossings at the Grumeti River in Tanzania and the Mara River crossing in Kenya are the highlights of the wildebeest migration.

If you’re traveling on a budget, the best time to go on safari is during the green season. You can expect a less crowded experience, which makes for a more intimate experience, particularly for couples.

Try our budget Serengeti safari.

Park entrance fees are incredibly expensive. You can pay up to $70 per person per day in the Masai Mara and $60 per person per day in the Serengeti.

This excludes camping fees at designated spots. You will not pay any park fees when you book a safari with us, they are included in your safari package.

This brings us to our big question, how much does it cost to see the Great Migration in Africa?

Migration safari cost the same rates just like other African Safari packages. The African great Wildebeest Migration safari costs anywhere between $125 and $1,500 per person per night.

A budget migration safari averages $150 per night, mid-range $350, and luxury $750. The extreme top safaris can easily go up to $1,500 per night or more! There is literally a safari to suit every budget.

What time of year is the Great Migration in Tanzania?

When can you see the Great Migration? The time to Witness the Great Wildebeest Migration river crossing is between the month of May-July in Serengeti National Park and Kenya from July to October in Masai Mara National Reserve.

This is the period that the wildebeest, after having feasted on the short green grasses of the southeastern Serengeti and after having given birth to their offspring, start getting ready for their 800-kilometer long trek.

The actual starting date may be anytime between late April and early June. This is the time you may have the privilege to see one of the greatest natural phenomena in the world: more than a million marching animals in a column up to 40 kilometers long.

During the migration, the herd will move towards the Western Corridor, where they will face the first major obstacle: crossing the Grumeti River.

Many animals don’t survive the crossing as they are being awaited by the area’s population of oversized crocodiles ready to feast.

The herd may congregate on the southern bank of the river and stay there for up to two weeks before crossing the river.

6 Days Great Migration Safari Tour in August-September

When the Grumeti River obstacle has been taken, the herd moves further north and starts crossing the next big hurdle, the Mara River, in July or August.

The Mara River crossing is where so many iconic Great Migration photos have been taken. After this crossing the herd flocks to the northwest plains and Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya.

The August – September period is considered being a bad time to visit Serengeti National Park and see the Great Migration as the herd moves into the Masai Mara in Kenya.

However, migration patterns show that about half of the herd stays on the Tanzanian side, in the Mara Serengeti area.

In this period, smaller herds of wildebeest (well consider small… herds may count up to between 500 and thousands of individuals) frequently cross the Mara River, back and forth, for no apparent reason.

This is an excellent time to stay at one of the Serengeti Mara camps.

6 Days Great Migration Safari Tour in October – November

Crossing the Mara River northbound means that, at one point, the herd needs to cross the river one more time before commencing the trek back in a southerly direction.

This usually happens in October, but sometimes earlier. In this period the herd will cross the northern plains and Lobo area.

This section of Serengeti National Park is little-visited, so if you are looking to see the migration in relative quietness, this would be the time.

The wildebeest return to the short-grass plains and calving ground around Ndutu in late November. And from here, the Great Migration starts all over again.

Note: As mentioned earlier, in this 6 Days Great Migration Safari Tour, the timings outlined on this page concern guidelines as exceptions occur frequently.

In November 2013, the wildebeest already started trekking back to the southern Serengeti short-grass plains when suddenly it started raining north of the Mara River.

Nature is as nature does and the herd turned around, back into the Masai Mara in Kenya. The herd stayed there for about three weeks before resuming their southbound journey.

A year later, in 2014, freak rains in the southern Serengeti caused much of the herd to remain behind and not make the northbound journey towards the Western Corridor up to July.

6 Days Great Migration Safari Tour in December-April

We can find the main calving grounds in the area southeast of Seronera: typical Serengeti plains stretch all the way to the Ndutu area near Ngorongoro.

Triggering their move to this area are the short rains in November and December. The wildebeest stick around this area until the end of the long rains, the end of April, early May, this is the perfect time to take your 6 Days Great Migration Safari Tour.

The delightful news is that this section of Serengeti National Park is easily accessible and that in this period the landscape becomes lush.

If you are keen on witnessing the calving in this 6 Days Great Migration Safari Tour, february is usually the calving season in the Ndutu area and the southeastern plains: the very best time to visit this area.

As wildebeest, zebra and other ungulates are so many and give birth to so many calves, the spectacle works as a magnet for predators.

As early as March or April the herd may move again in search of greener pastures. Seeing the actual migration in this period is more difficult, but chances are that you will encounter very large herds on the move.

When to take the 6 Days Great Migration Safari Tour for the Migration: It is a matter of choice whether you would like to plan your Serengeti safari around the Great Migration.

We have mentioned earlier that the Serengeti is a year-round destination as it covers a vast area and offers unparalleled wildlife viewing.

With this 6 Days Great Migration Safari Tour, chances that you will be at the exact spot of the Great Migration herd crossing a river (either at the Grumeti or Mara River) are very slim.

Also, the timing of herd movements cannot be guaranteed in this 6 Days Great Migration Safari Tour. However, if you choose the right part of the Serengeti: the southeast and Ndutu from December through to May.

In the Western Corridor from May to July, the Serengeti Mara area from July through to October, and the northern Serengeti and Lobo area in October and November, large herds of wildebeest and their entourage should be easily located.


What month is the Great Migration in Kenya?

The Great Migration Masai Mara National Reserve is known as the movement of a million-plus wildebeest from Serengeti in Tanzania northwards into the adjoining Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya.

This 6 Days Great Migration Safari Tour, guarantee you an insight into one of the world’s most spectacular and thrilling displays of wildlife behavior.

Our 6 Days Great Migration Safari Tour is best for all leve of travelers. The migration takes place every year with the animals’ primal instincts guiding them towards greener pastures following the climatic rainfall patterns over the Serengeti-Maasai Mara ecosystem.

For the 2021 and 2022 seasons, we recommend planning your 6 Days Great Migration Safari Tour travel for mid-July as this is when the migration typically starts proper with the larger herds of wildebeest starting the move into Masai Mara. The migration takes place till the end of August, before declining into mid-September.


How do you see the Wildebeest Migration in your 6 Days Great Migration Safari Tour?

You can see the migration during a safari game drive in the Masai Mara Game reserve which is conducted in specialized vehicles driver by experienced Driver-Guides.

As there are several core points where the wildebeest cross the rivers, it may be necessary to access and station oneself at these points during a day-long outing in the reserve as some of the lodges and camps can be up to an hour’s drive from the ideal vantage points.

Most tourists who come specially to see the migration consider seeing the river crossings a highlight of their 6 Days Great Migration Safari tour and therefore want to spend enough time at these crossing points, which by the way tend to vary slightly every year while staying within a generally similar sub locality of the reserve.
