12 Days Seychelles and Kenya Wildebeest Migration

12 Days Seychelles and Kenya Wildebeest Migration

In reality, there is no spectacle on earth as the one of the wildebeest migration which seems to neither start nor finish in their endless search for food and water, as they migrate across the Serengeti- Masai Mara ecosystem in a relentless sequence of life and death which occurs annually.

The only beginning is the calving season which sees new members join the struggle in what is termed action-packed in February at the Ndutu plains as 75000 calves are born before the journey starts again in May-June with the rutting season as the wildebeest prepare to cross the dangerous Mara River which is filled with big Nile crocodiles and the end is the death this was evidenced by the East African author and photographer Jonathan Scott, who has spent the better part of the last 30 years witnessing the events of the great migration in the  Serengeti and Masai-Mara ecosystem.
