No wildlife event on the planet rivals Kenya’s Great Migration for sheer drama. Enormous herds of wildebeest and zebra, two million strong, make a great circuit across the Serengeti Plains as they travel from Tanzania north into Kenya’s famed Maasai Mara and back, following the new grass that sprouts with the seasonal rains. A host of predators follows in stealthy pursuit.

This mass animal migration in Africa’s most celebrated safari destination is one of nature’s most incredible phenomena, and is the primary reason that Kenya has become one of Africa’s most celebrated safari destinations.

Watch this video to see what it’s like to experience thousands of wildebeest thundering across the vast African plains during the Great Migration.
