When the Great Migration begins

The journey of the herds begins in May, with the arrival of the great rains. the journey includes stops, during which the animals rest, mate, give birth. Throughout the season we see continuous crossings.

The herds can also count up to 80,000 specimens, but can also be formed by a few units.
When the herds arrive at the rivers, one can witness one of the most famous and at the same time bloody spectacles of nature: the passage to the fords of the Grumeti River and the Mara is theater of a carnage.

Which animal species participate in the Great Migration

Thousands of wildebeest , zebras and antelopes set out to cross the river that divides the great Tanzanian national park of Serengeti and the Masai Mara.

The large crocodiles that populate the waters of these rivers patiently await the arrival of the animals that, despite the presence of the enemy, bravely try to reach the opposite bank to conquer the green and rich pastures of the Maasai Mara

The specimens that laboriously reach the shores are often awaited by felines , whose hunting is easy in front of exhausted animals.
The final work is up to vultures , jackals and all scavenger animals.
In the savannah everyone has a task, life unfolds with silent harmony and the cycle of life repeats itself, as does migration to infinity.
