A thrilling wildebeest migration on earth surface where thousands of wildebeest, zebra plus gazelles from southern Serengeti plains move to Northern Serengeti and cross Mara River to reach Masai Mara Kenya searching green pasture and freshwater.

The Wildebeest utilize southern plains (Ndutu Plains) nestled between Serengeti and Ngorongoro for calving due to abundance of short grasses rich in mineral nutrients, before migrating to western corridor of Serengeti after exhausting southern plains resources. Upon reaching western corridor the migration starts to cross the Grumeti River home to Giant Nile Crocodiles heading further north to approach Mara River located along borders of Tanzania and Kenya.
