Great Wildebeest Migration Safari in Tanzania

We are referring to the annual Wildebeest Migration, which sees hundreds of thousands wild animals on the move to chase the rains in their epic struggle for survival. The great trek is joined by more than 1,000,000 wildebeests, 200,000 zebras and about 300,000 Thomson’s gazelles. In an endless cycle they migrate clockwise across the Serengeti National Park and Masai Mara in Kenya, covering 800 to 1000 kilometers annually. Being tracked by African’s big predators and meeting many obstacles on their way, it is a tough and relentless quest in search for better grass and fresh water.

Zebras and wildebeest graze harmoniously, each eating different parts of the same type of grass. As the wildebeest do not have a natural leader, the migrating herd can split up into smaller groups and covering a big part of the Serengeti. Yet, when there is a dangerous hurdle to cross, they tend to congregate again.

Now, while you might have a clearer understanding of the movements of migration, game focus is not always what you would expect. You must keep in mind that the immense herds are spread out over the ecosystem of the Serengeti-Masai Mara, and may not always be close to each other. That said, even though the herds are slightly spaced out, it is always an amazing experience to be amongst them.
