Lion surprises unlucky sleeping wildebeest in the Maswa Game Reserve!

See how a lion sniffs out a wildebeest who is hiding in the bushes. He manages to almost immediately catch the wildebeest and keep it there for his brother lion as they enjoy an easy meal. This is just one of many predators wildebeest have to watch out for if they become isolated from the larger herd. This kill was spotted in the Maswa Game Reserve.

This spectacular video was taken by Manja Kema on 24 February 2024.

Herd spotted in the Maswa Game Reserve!

A huge herd was spotted near the northwest area of the Maswa Game Reserve. These wide-open plains offer a perfect grazing spot for the wildebeest and their calves before they continue on their migration route. During January and February, more than 1.5 million wildebeest cross into the Maswa Game Reserve, which is situated to the south of the Serengeti and the west of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

This stunning video was taken by Glenn Ringer on the 22nd of February 2024.

Newborn calf finding its feet in the Maswa Game Reserve!

A calf took its first steps in the Maswa Game Reserve. Wildebeest calves need only a few minutes to find their feet and begin to walk almost immediately after birth. These calves must quickly learn to run to keep up with the larger herd as they continue their journey on the migration route.

This heartwarming video was taken by Manja Kema on the 21st of February 2024.

Huge wildebeest herd spotted grazing near Gol Kopjes!

This herd was spotted near Gol Kopjes in the Serengeti National Park. This wildebeest herd has made a stop on their journey south to graze on these lush plains before moving on for calving. The wildebeest need to be alert in this area as Gol Kopjes is well known for having one of the highest densities of cheetahs in Africa!

This amazing video was taken by Michael Laubscher on the 18th of February 2024.
