10 Days Wildebeest Migration.

Each year around the same time the 'Great Wildebeest Migration' begins in the Ngorongoro area of the southern Serengeti of Tanzania. A natural phenomenon determined by the availability of grazing. June to July is a transitional period between the rains and the dry season. As they concentrate on the few remaining green patches of savannah, these huge herds reform and push further north towards the Masai Mara. This final push north results in a massing along the banks of the swollen Mara River, producing one of the world's truly most spectacular sights.
