The annual wildebeest migration in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park and Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the most spectacular wildlife events on the planet. Sometimes referred to as the ‘Greatest Show on Earth', The Great Wildebeest Migration is a movement of approximately 1.5 million wildebeest throughout the Serengeti and Masai Mara ecosystems. 400,000 zebra and 200,000 gazelles accompany them along the way, making a total of over 2 million migrating animals!
Despite the wealth of maps and illustrations showing the path of the migrating herds, as with anything in nature, the actual day to day movement is entirely unpredictable. Wildebeest have no natural leader and subsequently herds split up, go this way then that....often heading off in a completely different path to the one they choose yesterday.
The easiest way to try and comprehend the Great Migration is as one mega herd, with a number of smaller splinter herds. It is the mega herd which all maps and illustrations display. If you were to include the splinter herds then it soon becomes evident that the entire Migration can often cover half the entire Serengeti!
