The Great Wildebeest Migration

Every year, in the vast plains of East Africa, an extraordinary event unfolds

It is a breathtaking spectacle showcasing nature’s raw power and wildlife’s resilience.

As the largest migration on Earth, millions of wildebeests, zebras, and  gazelles embark on a treacherous journey across the Serengeti-Mara  ecosystem, traversing perilous rivers and facing formidable predators.

Their search for fresh grazing pastures and water sources primarily drives the migration.

It is a cyclic pattern that follows seasonal rainfall, ensuring a continuous food supply for these herbivores.

Wildebeests, or gnus, are robust and sturdy animals well-suited for endurance.

They possess a unique ability to sense rainfall and detect lush grass from long distances.

This uncanny intuition enables them to navigate the ever-changing landscape for greener pastures.

Their synchronized movements, guided by an intricate communication  system, create a captivating display of unity and coordination.

The migration begins in the southern Serengeti, typically around  December, where the wildebeests give birth to their young during the  calving season.

Adult  African elephants can grow up to 13 feet tall and weigh around 13,000 pounds.
