The wildebeest migration is a natural phenomo just as the America bison
migration which takes place every year as aspectacular animal event
For those eco friendly and great animal enthusiast with biodiversity and wildlife conservation minds in the world, how beautiful is it to embark to one of the greatest wonder of wildebeest migration in a hot air balloon? How good can it ever get to see such animals on a safari? Animals all over the world animals such as the African wildebeest, zebras, Africa and Asian elephants, American bison, the Chinese goats and many more have been migrating to better breeding grounds and good feeding natural habitat. 

During the Animal migration the 
zebras are the first ones 

The animals of Africa and specially the wild animals of Africa such as the African big five animals or the big 5 Kenya as well as some of the big savannah cat mainly the African lion, the African leopard and the cheetah used to roam the beautiful African savannah continent from the tip of the Mediterranean Sea to the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. But with all the animal competition, animal poaching and animal hunting at the demise of the century saw the carnage of these beautiful African animals almost becoming extinct and one of the biggest habitat of endangered species. At the moment, the largest number of the African animal and many of the endangered wild animal species are found in Africa and only concentrated in Kenya and Tanzania animal habitat.

What animal facts do people know about the wildebeest? Is the wildebeest one of the most beautiful animals in the world where over 1.5 million animals make this wildebeest migration with a population of over 1.4 million wildebeest and 200,000 zebras and gazelles as far as these animals in the wild are concerned? My guess is,  animals all over the world whether in the wild or in captivity are all beautiful but it just depends of what beautiful animals are. For all the people who watch the Mara Tanzania Serengeti wildebeest migration videos, what information and facts about the animals of the Serengeti do they know? Was it the famous Serengeti highway? Is it the beautiful Masai Mara national park in Kenya for those who have made countless animal safaris to see the Kenya wildlife and this magical land of Kenya? Is it the dangerous Masai Mara River infested with the dangerous Nile African crocodiles or the mass drowning of around 5000 to 10000 wildebeest which took along the treacherous flooded Masai Mara River during the wildebeest migration in November 2007

Baby wildebeest are born during the migration
and are always ready to run hours after birth

To come to think of it do people really know when these wildebeest migration take place or it’s just a natural phenomenon which happens at the African savannah and the fact that these wild animals use their natural instincts to start the longest and the most dangerous animal migration across the most dangerous African forest, the Kenyan savannah and the animal habitat filled with the most dangerous predators along the African savannah. If people don’t have that animal instinct and rely of human instincts to go on an African safari to see these animal migration what if the wildebeest migration came too early or too late. Keep in mind that these beautiful dangerous animals will only migrate as soon as the long rains have started and the Maasai Mara national park plains are filled with plenty of animal food: rich fresh grass for the Masai Mara animals to feed.

Frequently asked questions about wildebeest migration

One interesting animal facts about wildebeest migration is that since Kenya is a tourist destination because of the amazing Kenyan animals and tourism brings most of the foreign exchange to the country, the wildebeest migration is in fact which determines the tourism peak season in Kenya where there is full occupancy in almost all the world class hotels, safari lodges, safari camps not only within the vicinity of Masai Mara national park but as far as Mombasa where you have beautiful white sandy beaches from the south coast such as Diani beach to the north coast with the famous Lamu Island.

What do you think would have happened if the Serengeti highway in Tanzania would have been built? Would the wildebeest migration still be there in full swing? What if the Masai Mara River gets flooded again due to the unforeseen weather changes as it has been in many parts of the world? Would there be another hue and cry people blaming tourist as a cause for thousands of wildebeest drowning as a result of tourist flocking the banks of the Masai Mara River during the wildebeest migration? 

What if the African Nile crocodile was not declared as endangered and harvesting or poaching of these beautiful Nile crocodiles were poached to extinction, I guess the Masai Mara River would have ended up being strewn with wildebeest carcasses which would have been unhealthy to the already existing wildlife and the people of Kenya.  These are just some of the few frequently asked questions about the wildebeest migration. As far as the wildebeest predators are concerned, the wildebeest which manage to cross the Mara River and are lucky to evade the powerful jaws of the dangerous African Nile crocodiles will not be out of the woods yet as the dangerous African big cats awaits them across the African savannah plains as well. This vicious wildebeest migration is very crucial as it ensures natural selection where only the strong wildebeest survive wile the weak such as the wildebeest baby, the young and sick wildebeest and the old wildebeest circum to the spectacular lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas and even the African wild dogs hunting spree.
