Such a magical sight in the Masai Mara National Reserve!!

HerdTracker update 15 Oct 2019 by Susan Schmitz

Such a magical sight captured in the Masai Mara National Reserve!!

By late October, when the short rains start falling on the Serengeti‘s short-grass plains, filling seasonal waterholes and bring new flushes of growth, the wildebeest start heading south again.

The herds trek down through the eastern woodlands – 90% of the female wildebeest are pregnant with the calving season that generally starts in February. Tightly grouped as they pass through the wooded country, the wildebeest scatter and spread out again once they reach the open plains of the Serengeti.
