Tanzania's wildlife parks have the highest concentration of small and large mammals than any other parks with the largest continuous migration. The endless plains of east Africa are the setting for the world’s greatest wildlife spectacle - the 1.5 million wildebeest migration. From the vast Serengeti plains to the hills of Kenya’s Masai Mara over 1.5 million wildebeest and 200,000 zebra and gazelle, relentlessly tracked by Africa’s great predators (Lions, Cheetah, Hyena), migrate in a clockwise fashion over 1,800 miles each year in search of rain ripened grass.
There is no real beginning or end to a wildebeest's journey. Its life is an endless pilgrimage, a constant search for food and water. The only beginning is at the moment of birth. An estimated 400,000 wildebeest calves are born during a six week period early each year - usually between late January and mid-March.
It is this incredible spectacle that allows for some amazing viewing and photographing.
