16 reasons why you should see the Great Migration in 2016

Jarred Manasse 18 August 2016

Known as one of the seven wonders of the world, the annual great wildebeest migration in Kenya and Tanzania is truly nature’s greatest spectacle.

Every year, approximately 1.7 million, 400,000 Thomson’s gazelle, 300,000 zebras and 12,000 elands will take a survival journey from the Serengeti National Park towards the Masai Mara National Reserve in search of better grass and water resources. Along the way, the massive herds will have to cross Nile-crocodile infested rivers and keep a keen eye out for opportunistic predators such as lion, leopard and cheetah.
