As the world’s largest protected grassland, it’s made up of vast savanna plains and forests. It’s especially well known for its predators which boast lions, leopards, cheetahs and hyenas.
The Serengeti is spectacular at any time of year, however the highlight is the wildebeest migration. This is when millions of animals including zebra cross from the Serengeti into the Masai Mara in Kenya and later return to the Serengeti. This time of year is also the calving season when baby animals are born. The Migration generally begins in November following the rains in this region, the herds move from the neighbouring Masai Mara and head south into the Serengeti. Although, in August the herds cross back into the Masai Mara.
