Wildebeest Migration at Masai Mara

By | Kenya, Tanzania | No Comments

Enjoy Babette’s firsthand account of the zebra wildebeest migration from the Masai Mara. She is currently on the Tanzania/Kenya border at Sala’s Camp and is witnessing between 100,000 to 200,000 animals crossing the sand river!

“The zebra generally come in before the wildebeest and eat the long grass. The latter then come in and crop it short. We came across a huge group of thousands of zebra crossing a small river, and it was such a sight. I understand why they are called a dazzle of zebra. The mingling and merging of masses of stripes indeed dazzles both the imagination and the mind!”
