Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANETs) is a peer to peer fashion network of intelligent nodes in order to establish a communication session for disaster or emergency like environment, where a proper structure seems to be hard/impossible. Recently, many reactive and proactive protocols have been proposed for MANETs. Multi-path routing protocols have main objective to load balance for highly congested network. This paper aims to study the behavior of multi-path routing protocols (Ad-hoc On Demand Multipath Distance Vector (AOMDV), Multi-Path Dynamic Addressing routing (MDART)) under five different mobility models (Random Waypoint mobility, Random Walk mobility,
Reference Point Group mobility, Gauss Markov, Manhattan Grid mobility model). The RPGM model outperform for both AOMDV and MDART regarding Throughput, End-to-End Delay, Average Packet loss, and Packet Delivery Fraction (PDF). The output of selected performance matrices under selected mobility models has an inverse relation with node density for both multi-path protocols.
