2. Watch the great migration
The Great Migration is the largest mammal migration on earth. Often hailed as the wonder of the natural world, Africa’s great wildebeest migration is an incredible event to watch.
The annual movement traveling of over 1.5 million ungulates – wildebeest and enormous groups of zebra, Thomson’s gazelle, and Grant’s gazelle about an 800-kilometer trek on the Serengeti National Park ecosystem.
The journey begins on the Southern Plain of the Serengeti when wildebeest calves are being born. Move clockwise from the south, west, north, and back to the south. 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.
3. Guided walking tour
