Huge wildebeest herd spotted near Gol Kopjes heading east!

HerdTracker update 09 Mar 2024 by Mawe Lodges

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.

The nearest accommodation to the herds: Namiri Plains Camp, Serengeti National Park Safaris

Recommended safari: Affordable Fly-in Ngorongoro and Migration Safari
