About this trip
The Great Migration
Serengeti National park is home to thousands of migrating wildebeest which attract nature lovers, filmmakers and Photographers from around the globe. The Wildebeest migration is one of Africa’s most dazzling cycles of life. Every year the wildebeest cross the Mara River in search for greener pastures. This epic journey from north to south spans almost 3000 kilometers. The herds move rhythmically in a clockwise direction as they spread across the Serengeti plains.
