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.

Calf taking its first steps on the plains of Kakesyo!

A calf was born on the Kakesyo plains near the Ndutu area of the Serengeti National Park. Calving season is well underway as thousands of wildebeest calves are being born every day on the plains. This beautiful scene encapsulates the beginning of the first migration journey for these wildebeest calves as they start running with the herd within just a few hours of birth.

This stunning video was taken by Michael Laubscher on the 12th of February 2024.

Massive herd spotted at Ndutu Swamp!

This herd was spotted in the Ndutu Swamp area of the Serengeti National Park. These thirsty wildebeest stopped for a well-deserved drink on Christmas Day! This massive herd will now likely settle in the Ndutu area for calving season after which they will begin the migration route again with their new calves.

These two incredible videos were taken by George Thoms on the 25th of December 2023.
