When most people think of safari and the Serengeti, they envision scenes of the Great Migration, complete with images of hundreds of thousands of wildebeest stampeding through the croc-infested waters of the Mara River. Indeed, the annual migration of millions of animals, predominately wildebeest but also including zebra, gazelle, and eland, across the Serengeti ecosystem, is the grandest spectacle of wildlife in Africa. However, to envision the true Great Migration, imagine a column of wildebeest 24 miles (40 km) long, trudging across the plains two or three abreast, all on the move in search of fresh, green grass. Now imagine that it takes more than two weeks for that column of animals to cross a single spot. Imagine them bunched together in protective herds, or giving birth, or scrambling in panic to escape the jaws of a snapping crocodile. Imagine lions and hyenas prowling the scene in search of the weakest animal or the lone straggler separated from its herd. Only now have you visualized the magnificent phenomenon that is the Great Serengeti Migration.
