What is wildebeest Migration

What You Should know about the wildebeest migration

The Great Wildebeest Migration is the movement of more than 1 million wildebeests from the South of Serengeti in Tanzania to the North entering Masai Mara in Kenya to the south of Kenya. They move in herds and in masses in search of food and water. Wildebeests use their biological clock to move as they find conducive environments to mate in Masai Mara and favorable environments to give birth in the Ndutu Conservation area and south of Serengeti.

The numbers are surprising: over 1.2 million wildebeest and 300,000 zebra along with topi and other gazelle move in a constant cycle through the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem in search of nutritious grass and water. Guided by survival instinct, each wildebeest will cover 800 to 1,000km on its individual journey along age-old migration routes.
