The short answer is yes but as with anything in nature, the migration can be erratic and unpredictable.
We went to The Masai Mara and Serengeti in mid - October 2010 and we saw massive amounts of Wildebeest in both areas. The better crossings where happening in the Northern Serengeti at that time as the Wildebeest are making their way from the Masai Mara back into the Serengeti and heading south so we’d suggest you go to one of the Northern Serengeti Camps. Traditionally, the best time to see the Migration in the Masai Mara is August to October with it tailing off towards the end of October but it has been entering and leaving the Masai Mara later than “normal” over the past couple of years meaning that you get excellent migration viewing well into October and even early November.
Something else to consider if your tight on time now and want to travel later in the year is the Wildebeest will make their way South and congregate in the Ndutu region of the Southern Serengeti from mid-December to March for calving season and that is a sight to behold as well.
