Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • When is the best time to go to see the wilderbeast migration?

    There are parts of the migration that you see all year round, it just depends which part you want to see. Dec - March is calving season, then April - Jun they trek west and then July - nov is the period of river crossings. I would recommend doing a little more research to find out which part of this cycle is more appealing to you.
