What is Great Migration?

The Great Migration is the annual movement of more than 1.5 million ungulates, wildebeest but also enormous groups of zebra, Thomson’s gazelle, and Grant’s gazelle about 800-kilometer trek the Serengeti National Park ecosystem

The journey starts in the Southern Plain of Serengeti when wildebeest calves are being born. Then Wildebeest herd followed by the Zebras and Gazelles moves clockwise from the south, west, north (Masai Mara in Kenya), and back to the south. The migration is not without risk – crossing rivers means facing crocodiles, patiently waiting for a kill, or seeing a group of lions collaborating to hunt down a wildebeest is an unforgettable sight
