Millions of wildebeest and zebra follow an annual circular route
around the Masai Mara/Serengeti ecosystem in an endless quest for
fresh pasture and water. The migration is usually present in the
Masai Mara in Kenya between July and October. During this time,
dramatic river crossings are the order of the day with crocodiles
laying in wait for the wildebeest and zebra.
Between December and March, the migration is found in the
southern Serengeti in Tanzania. An estimated 400,000 wildebeest
calves are born during a six week period each year - usually
between late January and mid-March.
