African elephants tend to migrate to wherever there is more water available. As drier weather sets in, the herd must find water. Therefore, they will migrate to the closest river system or location that has water that is not in danger of drying up.
Fascinatingly, the route is generally followed by the matriarch of the herd, who retains the route memory mentally, and will lead the herd the same way every year.
