Each year around the same time, the circular great wildebeest migration begins in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area of the southern Serengeti in Tanzania and loops in a clockwise direction through the Serengeti National Park and north towards the Masai Mara reserve in Kenya. This migration is a natural phenomenon and one of the “Seven New Wonders of the World”.
1.7 million wildebeest and the following hundreds of thousands of other plains game, including around 470,000 gazelles. About 250,000 wildebeest die during the journey from Tanzania to the Maasai Mara National Reserve in southwestern Kenya, a total of 800 kilometres. Death is usually from thirst, hunger, exhaustion, or predation.
