Wildebeest Migration Begins at Masai Mara
The great wildebeest migration has begun at Masai Mara in Kenya, marking the start of one of the largest wildlife migrations in the world.
An estimated 1.5 million wildebeests, zebras and gazelles will cross the crocodile-infested Mara River over the coming weeks, and tourists are already rushing to the Masai Mara game reserve to witness this annual spectacle.
The great wildebeest migration sees close to 2 million ungulates (hoofed animals) moving from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania into the Masai Mara Game Reserve in search of pasture and water and then back to Serengeti by the promise of foliage.
