The Great Migration

The Great Migration

The Great Migration, often referred to as the “Wildebeest Migration,” is one of the most spectacular wildlife phenomena in the world, occurring in the Maasai Mara ecosystem in Kenya and the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. The Great Migration is a year-round event, as the massive herds of wildebeest, zebras, and other ungulates constantly move in search of water and fresh grazing land. However, the most dramatic and iconic part of the migration occurs from July to October when millions of wildebeest and zebras cross the Mara River into Kenya’s Maasai Mara. One of the most dramatic moments of the Great Migration is when the herds attempt to cross the crocodile-infested Mara River. The crossings are perilous, with predators lurking in the water and steep river banks posing additional challenges. Many animals perish during these crossings, but it’s also a time of plenty for predators such as crocodiles, lions, and hyenas.
