Among the most popular wildlife events, the Great Migration of Tanzania demand for special dignity. Known as the Greatest Show on Earth, this destination attracts a huge number of zebra and gazelle. This is an event throughout the year. Rain causes huge grass plains in the mid part of Southern Serengeti, it is one of the most important reason behind the migration. In the month of May wildebeest herds are accumulated in this park. These animals are usually collected from the north part of the Serengeti. Within short duration the scenario will change as the number gradually increase to a huge. The eastern part of this park is getting popularity with the edge of years. This is a time between April to June when the animals migrated in the same destination and the movement exceeds 20 lakhs or more.

Beside this, we also suggest about Sasakwa, Faru Faru, Grumeti River Camp and Mbalageti Lodge for the western part of the same. A small portion of the gathering pushed towards Northern Lobo area. This is yearly movement which moves in a circular fashion throughout the months. The animals used to search their food and water, to do that they hunt for new places. The basic reason behind this movement is the seasonal rain in this part of tourism world. It brings the grasses in discussed area. From the mid time of August, the herds usually move towards Northern Serengeti and Masai Mara of Kenya, which gives new flavor to this world famous migration.
With the movement of grasses the herds will move towards Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Portions of the animals move to north while the other part moves towards south direction. Second stage of Great Migration starts in the first part of October and continued up to last November. The rain will bring the grasses once again which attracts the herds. This part of migration also deserves special dignity as the number of tourist is hiking on yearly basis. By December the scenario is initiates towards a new session of migration. From the beginning of January, the migration starts concentrating towards Lake Ndutu. This part of migration takes several tracks.
