The annual migration of the animals, (wildebeest and zebra) takes place each year between June and October. The flow of animals moves from a southerly to a northerly and westerly direction as the herds head north towards the Mara River in search of food. Between July and August each year, literally millions of wildebeest, head in their droves from the Serengeti in search of fresh grasslands further north towards the Maasai Mara in Kenya. Around November of each year, they turn and head back in a south easterly direction towards Tanzania. The flow of animals is entirely dependant on the weather and so the patterns change from year to year. Below is a rough idea of how the animals move over the course of each year, by following the movement of the arrows.
