Baby zebra steals the spotlight from wildebeest herd spotted in Moru

Watch how this baby zebra steals the spotlight from the wildebeest herd while they graze in the background. Wildebeest and zebra herds often travel together, as wildebeest have a great sense of hearing, and zebras have amazing eyesight, which makes them strong allies as they face many predators on their journeys. These zebras and wildebeest were sighted in Moru, near the Kopjes in Serengeti National Park.

This heartwarming video was taken by Safarisandstuff on the 2nd of April 2024.

Large herd spotted in central Serengeti

A massive herd of wildebeest and zebras was spotted in the central area of Serengeti National Park. A group of people experienced this magical scene while on their safari. Wildebeest and zebras are herbivores and can be docile around humans unless provoked or if it is calving season, as they can be quite protective of their young. Do not be afraid to see The Great Migration yourself one day, as it is truly a must-see in person!

These beautiful pictures were taken by Kingson Mazee on the 31st of March 2024.

Huge wildebeest herd spotted near Gol Kopjes heading east!

A wildebeest herd was spotted near Gol Kopjes in the Serengeti National Park. Wildebeest play a vital role in the ecosystem, as their grazing helps prevent overgrowth of the vegetation. As the wildebeest continue moving on their route, their waste fertilizes the soil and replenishes the vegetation for other wildebeest and animals.

This stunning video was taken by Mawe Lodges on the 9th of March 2024.

Massive wildebeest herd spotted near Ndutu!

This herd was spotted moving near Ndutu in Serengeti National Park. The great migration usually comes to the Ndutu area around late December and can stay here until April! They come to this region to give birth to their calves, as the grass in Ndutu is rich in nutrients for these growing wildebeest. The short grass in this region also allows adult wildebeest to spot predators easily.

Wildebeest calf has a drink of its mother’s milk near Ndutu!

This wildebeest calf and its mother were spotted near Ndutu. Most wildebeest calves will have to suckle on their mother for around four months, but they can also start eating grass in around 10 days. The calf usually stays around its mother until the next year’s newborn arrives. It is important for wildebeest calves to quickly build up their strength soon after birth so they can easily slot into the larger herd.

Kijani African Safaris took this beautiful picture on the 9th of March 2024.

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.
