wildebeest

What exactly is the wildebeest migrations ?

The wildebeest migration is a dramatic story. It takes place within Kenya and Tanzania and is the greatest wildlife show on earth. Between the open plains of Serengeti and the Masai Mara, thousands and thousands of wildebeest and zebras migrate to greener pastures as seasons change and circle of life and death continues. Predators closely follow the wildebeest migrations waiting for an oppunity to strike weak prey as they make their way into different territories.. The most interesting part is when you watch them as they cross the Mara River. The first ones to jump into the river are trampled upon to death by the following multitude. The dead animals become a bridge over which all the other animals cross the river. The crocodiles feed on the remaining carcasses for months.
Masai Mara reserve is one of the most well known parks, which borders Kenya and Tanzania. It is one of the richest wildlife sanctuaries. It is in this very terrain that the annual migration takes place when millions of zebras, wildebeests and gazelles cross the plains below on their way to the rich new grasses of the Serengeti. This is a spectacle that should be witnessed at least once in a lifetime.
