Each year (during the months of June, July and August) over two million animals – including over a million wildebeest, half a million zebra and other antelope – migrate north, passing right through Singita Grumeti Reserves from the southern Serengeti to the adjoining Masai Mara (in Kenya), in search of food and water.

They return to the south – to mate and calve – when the grazing in the north is finished and the short November rains (in the south) have begun.
