Every year nearly 2 million wildebeest, zebra and other antelopes take part in a round trip journey of over 1700 miles as they migrate... in a clockwise loop from Tanzania’s Serengeti Plains northward into Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. Roving in search of food and water is no easy task, and over 250,000 animals will not survive the trip due in part to teeming numbers of predators looking for an easy meal. Vast numbers of crocodiles guard the waters of the Grumeti (Tanzania) and Mara (Kenya) rivers, looking to separate the weakest and youngest of the masses. The river crossings are not the only spectacles, as more predators lay waiting for their food source to come to them. Impressive amounts of lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, and hyena populate the savannah making chances of seeing a kill in action all that more prevalent.
